    General program questions

    Is this program the same as an internship?

    No. Trainees are hired as full-time employees within AES, with entry-level salaries and benefits. Trainee applicants must have already graduated from their college or university with a bachelor’s degree by January 2022. 

    What are the requirements for the Energy4Talent Program? 

    To qualify for the program, you must have completed your undergraduate degree between December 2019 and December 2021. No formal work experience is necessary to be considered. You must also have fluent/advanced English and be legally authorized to work in the location where you are applying.  

    What is the start date of the Energy4Talent program? 

    The program is scheduled to begin the week of January 17, 2022. More details will be provided to selected candidates as we approach the start date. 

    Is there a second or later start date? 

    No, there are not additional start dates. The 2022 cohort of Trainees will begin their program in January 2022.

    Is it possible to schedule an individual meeting to discuss the opportunity? 

    Due to the overwhelming response, we’re unable to meet individually at this stage. Please visit our website and review our FAQs for more details. 

    Is it possible to rotate through a specific functional area based on my preferences?

    Candidate preferences will be considered during the selection of rotation assignments. However, we cannot guarantee candidates will rotate in business areas of their choosing. 

    Do I get to choose my permanent location? How is location determined?  

    Final positions are determined through a combination of the background of the trainee, trainee performance throughout the program, their interests and, most importantly, where opportunities are available within the organization.  

    How often will trainees change or relocate offices?  

    While relocation is not guaranteed, we offer a comprehensive experience for trainees that may involve short-term (6 months) relocation and/or remote working opportunities in various areas. Due to COVID-19 precautions, relocation assignments are mostly paused until further developments.
