Through a partnership with Talbot County Public Schools, Easton Utilities welcomed three students to participate in the internship program for the spring semester. “TCPS is thrilled Easton Utilities has expanded their internship program to accommodate our high school students by offering a unique and meaningful opportunity that will significantly help these students meet their college and career goals,” stated Jodie Colombo, TCPS School-to-Career Transition Facilitator.
The high school internship program at Easton Utilities is a formal, comprehensive experience designed for selected candidates to gain valuable experience in their field of interest. “Our program provides a foundation for learning professional etiquette in a structured workplace environment with realistic business situations,” said Melissa Book, Human Resources Generalist for Easton Utilities.
All three students are currently enrolled in the TCPS Career and Technology Education (CTE) program, a curriculum aimed to guide, educate and prepare students for today’s workforce. During the semester, interns will work with various team members of Easton Utilities to acquire the skills necessary to perform daily departmental tasks related to their CTE program. To culminate the internship, each participant will present their final project to their department and supervising staff.
