Albany, NY (PRWEB) June 12, 2012
SmartWatt Energy, Inc. is pleased to announce that Patrick Shea and Ellen Uhlig have joined the company as interns in the corporate office in Albany. Patrick Shea will be interning with both the Human Resources Department and the Mechanical Division, while Ellen Uhlig will be interning with the Marketing Department.
“We are excited to welcome Patrick and Ellen into SmartWatt Energy’s internship program,” said Lindsey Speach, SmartWatt Energy’s Human Resources Director. “Interns have historically provided a fresh vantage point to our business, while simultaneously gaining experience that will provide them with a strong professional foundation. We have had great success in the past and currently with our internship program. Last year, an intern at our corporate office quickly became a full-time employee. The former intern/current full-time employee will be working closely with an intern this summer. SmartWatt Energy’s nationwide growth provides a demand for hard-working, talented and eager individuals interested in growing their careers; a mutually successful internship can be the first step in that process.”

Patrick currently works for H2O Solutions as a Water and Air Analyst and Sales Specialist. In these roles, Patrick performs in-home water testing for various contaminants, analyzes air quality for pollutants, and determines appropriate purification and filtration products based on the results. He has also served as the Director of Research for District Attorney candidate Michael Kogut, where Patrick conducted detailed candidate and current issue research. At the University at Albany, Patrick is the Vice President of Research and Development of the Student Entrepreneur Association.
