Students

Internships at Jackson EMC give high school and college students the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience in their field of study or interest.  Our internship program helps students develop important skills while learning about our company and the industry. Our goal is to help students learn the necessary skills and provide them with a sense of direction to be successful in the next stage of their careers.

I not only learned the daily importance of engineers at Jackson EMC, who maintain and install hundreds of services for members, but I also was provided with a holistic exposure to each of the other departments at Jackson EMC.
