The Clay County Utility Authority (CCUA) proudly announces the return of our High School Internship Program. After a short hiatus due to COVID, our staff could not be more excited to welcome back applicants. Through this collaborative effort with the Clay County School District, high school students will have the opportunity to work in a hands-on learning environment, while gaining real world experience.

The program gives chosen applicants an understanding of the operations of a public utility, including water treatment, wastewater treatment, engineering sciences, geographical information systems (GIS), information technology (IT), environmental resource protection, and general business. We intend for selected interns to apply their knowledge gained during the internship in future utility-based careers or incentivizing them to continue their education at the collegiate level. By learning in-demand skillsets, those who complete the program will have a competitive career advantage for years to come.

CCUA understands the needs for a growing job market. As our community continues to develop at a record rate, the importance of creating a talented workforce to help meet those needs has never been more crucial. We also understand that there is no better place than Clay County to help create future jobs. CCUA has a successful history with our High School Internship Program and currently has three employees who transitioned to full-time positions at the end of their internships. Our organization strongly believes in equipping future generations throughout the community with the tools needed to succeed.

We designed these paid internships for durations of eight months, running from October to August of the following year. Selected interns will be able to develop leadership and communication skills, as well as make professional connections while under the supervision of experienced CCUA staff members. Directly interacting with members of our team gives students the chance to learn about the intricate innerworkings of organizational management that is usually only seen once you are already employed.

For those looking to apply to the High School Internship Program an applicant must be

  • entering their Junior or Senior year at Clay County High School in good standings
  • maintain between a minimum of 2.5 to a 3.0 GPA depending on internship position
  • between the ages of 16 and 18 years old
  • legally authorized to work in the United States.

Applications will be accepted beginning August 1st through September 15th. Once an application has been submitted Human Resources and the corresponding department head will reach out to set up an interview.

CCUA understands that the latter years of high school are an exciting time. We look forward to the opportunity of showcasing our vision, our mission, and why our organization is the best place to work. If you or someone you know is interested in applying to our High School Internship Program, please reach out to a Clay County High School Guidance Counselor for applications.
