Easton Utilities offers two formal, comprehensive internship programs aimed at college students and TCPS high school students. Both experiences are led by Melissa Book, Human Resources Generalist. At the onset, the participants attend a series of tours to learn about the services, infrastructure, and demands of each department. All interns select a specific project or topic and are required to conduct a professional presentation at the culmination of the program.
With the limited number of internship options available in this region, this program truly benefits the entire community. Giving the interns the experience needed to build their resumes is invaluable and has led to several local job placements, including a couple at Easton Utilities.
It is important to give these interns an authentic experience with a realistic understanding of what will be expected from them in the real world.
