Background

With the support of the Board of Directors and Executive Management, the District has a sixmonth, paid internship program for current college students.  Each year the program is offered to a maximum of six participants and allows students to apply college coursework to their assigned projects in order to gain valuable hands-on experience.  The last two programs included opportunities in the development Services, Engineering, Human Resources, Information Systems, and Public and Governmental Affairs departments. The most recent group of students completed their internship in October 2019, and included three participants who were assigned to the Engineering and Information Systems departments.  This program has been successful in recruiting qualified interns participating in the District’s program to fill full-time positions and successfully promote within the District.
