Interns Gain Hands-on Experience in Environmental, Mining Industries
Employers value relevant work experience when considering job candidates. This summer,10 geology students are getting that experience —and being paid for it. Several of the paid internships are part of UW-Eau Claire's Responsible Mining Initiative, housed in the university's geology department. The initiative was created when, in November 2013, the UW System awarded UW-Eau Claire a $451,000 Economic Development Incentive Grant to prepare highly qualified graduates for work in the mining industry, the environmental consulting industry and regulatory agencies such as the Department of Natural Resources.
