PECO hosted on Friday its first-ever Jr. Infrastructure Academy, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Bucks County Community College’s Epstein Campus. The event is part of the company’s commitment to promote opportunities to local junior and senior high school students who are interested in joining the utility industry. Starting with Bucks County, PECO aims to branch out and introduce students with an interest in the utility industry to family-sustaining careers at an earlier stage of life.

During the event, students from Bucks County Technical High School and Middle Bucks Institute of Technology participated in hands-on learning activities, mock interviews and live demonstrations on how to safely work in the energy field, in addition to learning about PECO’s hiring process and the roles and responsibilities of key energy industry positions.

PECO community partner Beyond Literacy offered resume and interview preparation, along with Technical Test Prep for the following professional exams: Construction and Skilled Trades Test (CAST), Technical Operations Selection System Test (TECH), Assistant Mechanic Operator (AMO) and more.
