The content below provides guidance when beginning, and navigating through, the online application. Please review the following and then continue with the Application Instruction tabs to the left.
Within the NYSERDA Portal, businesses can access a list of eligible intern candidate who have applied for, and been approved to participate in, the Clean Energy Internship Program but have not yet been submitted to NYSERDA for an internship role by another business. The instructions below review how to access the eligible Intern Candidate list.
Log into your NYSERDA Portal account.
From the NYSERDA Portal home screen, click View Eligible Interns. You will be directed to the Clean Energy Internship Program - Intern Candidate Directory.
This list can be filtered using the County and Season boxes at the top of the page and an intern's Resume and/or Cover Letter can be accessed using the respective links in the last column. To search using other intern candidate information, such as Major or Employment Areas of Interest, press Ctrl + F on your keyboard to use the find/search function of your browser.
Business must contact intern candidates directly to confirm their interest and availability for an internship.
If you expect to see an intern candidate on the list but cannot find them, it is an indication that the individual has not yet been approved to participate in the program. If this is the case, please confirm that the individual has submitted their intern application.
NYSERDA's review of intern applications may take 2-3 business days. If the review period for their internships application has passed and the intern candidate is still not on the approved intern list, contact [email protected] for more information on their application status.
Accessing the Application
Once in your NYSERDA Portal account, access the Submit a New Application tab. Select the Workforce Development and Training (PON4000) option.
Businesses will only see multiple program application options if they have been approved to participate in both the On-the-Job Training and Internship programs.
