Ethan has been busy this summer sitting in with Project Manager Noah Thornton and looking over his shoulder at how we do project management duties. When he’s not busy learning how to write POs, getting quotes, or working on spreadsheets, he seeks out other department managers to pick their brains on what they do and how it all works together with the big overall Commonwealth Electric Company of the Midwest (CECM) machine. Project Manager John Randall meets with Ethan once a week to go over what he is working on and just kick stuff around on what his team and CECM do. Ethan has a great interest in learning the WHY behind the WHAT. John is working with him to make sure he gets a full understating of what CECM is all about and what we really do so that when August rolls around, he can make a good, educated decision on “Is CECM right for me?”.

“I’m excited that CECM finally has an internship program, that’s how I learned. Young people can get a wider understanding of a business which will hopefully help them make a better long-term career decision.” – John Randall | Project Manager
