Student experience program
The Student Experience Program at the St. Johns River Water Management District is designed to be mutually beneficial to both the District and the student. This program provides the student with a solid foundation and understanding of workplace ethics and is specifically tailored to the needs of each individual student’s area of concentration.
Students must be a college junior, senior or graduate student with a major relative to the intern assignment.
Students who are interested in pursuing a professional career and meet the qualifications listed above should contact their school’s career center. Applications should be completed online at floridaswater.com. Qualified applicants will be evaluated and those who meet the criteria for each position may be contacted for an interview.
The District is not obligated to place co-op/intern students in permanent positions after completion of degree nor is the student obligated to accept a position with the District if a position is offered.
The Student Experience Program encompasses the following disciplines:
- Engineering (agricultural, chemical, civil and environmental)
- Hydrologic and geologic sciences
- Biological sciences
- Computer science
- Geographic information systems
The Student Experience Program includes both paid and unpaid internships. However, the availability of paid internships is subject to budget funding. The salary rate is based on a percentage of the hourly rate of an entry-level professional position in the student’s field of study and the student’s classification in school.
The District may provide a listing of rental properties and contact assistance; however, housing is the responsibility of the student.
Transportation to and from work is the responsibility of the student. Car pooling with current employees or interns may be possible. Van pools from Jacksonville and Gainesville to the headquarters office in Palatka may also be available based on seating availability.
