On February 22nd, we held another edition of the Haas Energy & Cleantech Panel & Firm Night, of which I was one of the organizers. The event, which took place in the Chevron Auditorium at the International House, is completely student-run, and traditionally serves as the unofficial kick-off of the recruiting season in the Energy and Cleantech fields.
This year, the panel featured speakers from Mohr Davidow Ventures, SunRun, Bloom Energy and Opower. The panel was followed by a more traditional career fair, in which more than 20 companies (Chevron, Brightsource, Dow Chemical, Adura Technologies, GE Energy, Siemens, PG&E, Simbol Materials, Cogenra, Sunpower... on top of those participating on the panel as well) had the chance to meet with the 100+ Haas students that had signed up.
This great turnout, both from companies and students, clearly shows the strength of the Energy & Cleantech space in Berkeley, and the healthy prospects of the upcoming summer internship recruiting.
