"We have contracts with several of the sub-contractors out at the Hanford site, and so we're here recruiting interns for their summer internship positions," says Shawna Edinger, with ANR Group Inc, a Richland staffing company.

Applications for entrance into the fall 2012 Nuclear Technology program are currently being accepted through April 9, 2012.  This is an opportunity for prospective students to learn about the program as well as the industry.
