For Students & Grads
A chance to make a difference... from day one.
When you join CEI, you immediately become a part of the team. We believe in providing a clear and achievable development path from day one. At CEI, you will have the opportunity to learn alongside the best in the business, gleaning information that will stay with you throughout your career. You will also be given the opportunity to take charge and lead, developing the leadership and relational skills that will make you invaluable.
Thanks to our “flat” organizational structure, we are able to align projects and opportunities with the skills, interests and backgrounds of our employees. Culturally, we welcome challenges and try to expose employees to new markets and projects to encourage personal growth. We provide an experienced, supportive and innovative culture that fosters development, while ensuring excellence at all levels. We continually learn from our experiences, allowing us to grow and improve as a group.
In short, we learn together, have fun together and produce exceptional work as a fully-functioning team. This is why many of our newest employees and recent grads have found CEI to be a great environment for career development.

In Their Own Words
"Before coming to Cupertino Electric, I didn't realize the breadth of experience I'd be able to get as a new graduate. While I truly enjoy the people I work with, I am most excited by CEI's willingness to accommodate my move from engineering to project management. I feel a great deal of control over my career and the path that will allow me to achieve my goals."
"They don't tell you in school that construction management can mean so much more than working for a general contractor. In my current role, I am not tied to a desk and enjoy the professional development opportunities and exposure to field team members. Compared to my peers at other contracting firms, I feel like I'm getting real-world experience much faster working for CEI."
"After exploring opportunities with general contractors, I accepted a position with Cupertino Electric because I love the environment, the interesting work and the value CEI puts on its employees. Because of the open lines of communication between estimators and project managers, I can see how my estimating role directly impacts a project."
