Charlotte Campbell is a pediatric nursing student at Estrella Mountain Community College.

If that wasn’t impressive enough, here’s another fact: Campbell is also one of SRP’s interns for the summer.

She’s in the Workspace Technologies group, which in her words prepares her for the technology she will be using as a nurse.

SRP Interns like Campbell make up the ranks of an incredible talent pool at SRP — enthusiastic learners with a desire to gain experience.

Adlar Tao, an ASU supply chain management major, said that he applied during a period of looking through a large array of options and was happy SRP called him.

“I like it here,” said Tao, who is now working in SRP’s Telecom group. “It’s a good balance of work and having fun at the same time. I go to all of the meetings and am learning how to manage a project, which is something coursework can’t prepare you for.”

Applying for an internship

SRP interns can apply year-round as long as they’re taking a minimum of 16 credit hours. Students can be at four-year colleges, gaining associate degrees or even going after their doctorate.

Graphic Records intern Gabriel Medina isn’t a stranger to SRP. He worked in security at the company and is now studying at Glendale Community College.

“I already knew SRP was a positive environment,” he said. “I’m just happy to be here and hope to be an asset.”

Kimberly Eberhard, Human Resource Analyst, Talent Acquisition, summed up the experiences of the interns she oversees as a real benefit to SRP, as well.

“I appreciate the fresh perspectives that our SRP interns bring to the table,” she said. “We all benefit from their diverse interests and fresh, innovative ideas. The program provides SRP with a valuable opportunity to identify and develop employees for the future.”

For more than 100 years, SRP has served Arizona by providing the critical services of water and power. Today, SRP builds upon that mission by ensuring Arizonans who work for our company have access to critical benefits, including tuition assistance for eligible interns.
