This last summer we had 70+ interns between our WI and IA locations busy working on challenging and meaningful projects. We have an established Internship Program with several fun and developmental events planned such as an over-night kick-off event, executive luncheon, volunteer event, plant tours, info sessions, networking opportunities and more! These events allow interns to interact with each other as well as learn about different areas of the company.

Hear what our previous interns are saying:
  • This internship was everything I hoped it would be and more. Alliant went above and beyond in providing great events for their interns. Some of the people I met this summer are now lifelong friends.
  • I feel like Alliant did a good job of bringing diversity into its internship. Everyone in the internship was very respectful of one another's background/perspectives.
  • The fact that the Senior VP and the CFO took time out their busy schedules to talk with interns speaks volumes.
  • Overall I would recommend Alliant as a place to intern because it's a well-run company that cares a lot about its employees, you meet a lot of people, learn a lot of interesting info about the industry, and there are a variety of activities.
*Job Responsibilities
Alliant Energy is seeking a dynamic, self-starter and go-getter to join our team. In this role you will be planning coordinating several projects at one time.

Our Physical Security Department is very fast paced and the same task from one day to the next usually does not exist. This role encompasses everything from performing background investigations, to various technologies of access control, intrusion detection and cameras.  This team may be called upon to problem solve ways to protect a perimeter and a few minutes later be called upon to complete any sort of investigation.

The installation of protection applications requires coordination and project management skills.  Investigations require thoroughness patience and fact finding.  Each scenario may not be the same and a unique application to fit the situation requires "outside the box" thinking.
*Job Qualifications

Minimum Requirements:

  • Students pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice, Security Management, Police Science, Risk Management, Sociology, Psychology, Human Resources or related at an accredited college or university are encouraged to apply
