RICHLAND, WA - Cultivating future engineers to potentially join their workforce some day - that's the goal of Energy Northwest's long-running Work Based Learning Program.

20 departments from Energy Northwest set up shop in North Richland this week for their annual career fair.

The company is recruiting high school juniors and seniors to work part-time at the power plant during the school year.

"This is an opportunity for a high school student who's very good at math or very good at science to say 'I might want to be an engineer.  I think I'll go take an internship program for a year in our engineering department at Energy Northwest and see if maybe I like it'," Anne Raffetto of Energy Northwest's Human Resources Department said.

22 students from five local high schools are participating in the Work Based Learning Program this year.
