Haskell, headquartered in Jacksonville, is a company that combines architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) expertise to deliver performance-driven facilities from concept to ribbon-cutting.

Haskell’s internship programs encompass secondary and post-secondary students. Executive leadership is fully supportive, understanding the integral part the programs play in their talent pipeline.

The high school program began in 2018 with six high schoolers for a six-week program. In 2023, Haskell hosted 14 students, and hopes to continue increasing its cohort size in the years to come. This internship program is an opportunity for students to job shadow, access Haskell University professional development training, work on design/build proposals, visit project sites, and more. Recruitment, interviews, and selection takes place during March and April, with paperwork completion during May for a program launch in June.

Haskell provides paid internship opportunities for students in two-year and four-year programs. For students in a two-year program, the internship length is determined based on the students’ needs, which is discovered during the interview process. Opportunities have been as short as three weeks or a full year, with students’ majors and mentor availability considered.

Students in four-year degree-seeking programs are placed onto active projects and are immediately paired with a hiring manager and mentor. Students undergo an onboarding and orientation process that further connects them with fellow interns and Haskell staff. During the summer, there are five virtual professional development workshops for students, with some led by executive leadership. The experience culminates at a two-day “Intern Summit” at the Jacksonville headquarters, gathering interns for an ice cream social, reception, service project, team building event, and more. A particular feature of this summit is the Intern Pitch, which involves teams of students presenting an idea to benefit the company to judges for the possibility of a monetary award.

Haskell employees feel that interns bring a unique energy to the office. Interns are considered an investment for the company, and it is a program that brings new hires. Within the collegiate internship program, there is about a 90% conversion rate of interns returning for an additional internship opportunity or transitioning to a full-time hire.

Clay County Utility Authority

In 2015, Clay County Utility Authority (CCUA) launched a high school internship program to address a shortage of operators. Recognizing that Operators required technical education, passing a test, and a year of experience to obtain a license rather than a college degree, CCUA management considered these natural initial positions to focus on. When Executive Director Jeremy Johnston began his tenure in March 2020, he identified the opportunity to formalize the internship initiative. In collaboration with the Clay County School District, applications open in late August and interviews take place in September, with October 1st serving as a typical start date.

Each year, five interns, primarily seniors, are assigned across five specialized areas: water and wastewater operations, business operations, engineering, GIS, and IT. Paid at $15 per hour, interns work around 20-25 hours weekly, accommodating their school schedules.

Reflecting on lessons learned while operating the internship program, Mr. Johnston emphasized the importance of formalized policies with flexibility for regular updates. Continuous staff development, focusing on long-term career paths, has been pivotal in fostering a supportive culture as employees’ enthusiasm for promotional opportunities and growth into supervisory roles. Employees are supportive and welcoming and want to teach and mentor. Department leaders are active participants in the interview process, too. Furthermore, embracing and balancing emerging technologies and the innovative spirit of young students is essential for addressing industry challenges, demanding sustained investment and commitment.

The success stories are compelling – since 2015, all operations interns have secured full-time positions, illustrating the program's commitment to nurturing young talent and addressing critical workforce needs in the community. Beyond the success of retaining young talent, three of the original interns are now lead operators in their respective departments.

CSI Companies

The CSI Connect internship program, an initiative that exposes students in underserved Jacksonville communities to technology careers and invests in future technology leaders. The program is building a pipeline of technology students, positioning them for lucrative jobs in the technology industry.

CSI Connect originated in response to a global corporate competition amongst 10 co-ops internationally, where they were challenged with the task of introducing a new way of doing business that closes the economic divide and celebrates diversity and inclusion. The program is offered in partnership with four Jacksonville colleges and the Duval County Public Schools.

“CSI Connect has evolved way beyond a contest,” Fulmore-Hardwick said. “The program empowers students to pursue careers in the tech industry, and it has given our interns the opportunity to be someone they never thought they could be.”

The program launched in May 2022 with six students from Edward Waters College, University of North Florida, and Florida State College of Jacksonville. Each intern was provided a laptop and paired with a mentor in the IT department based on their college discipline. They worked in the CSI Companies’ Jacksonville office alongside the employees and participated in various professional and leadership training related to networking, public speaking, building a brand, financial literacy, and wellness.

The inaugural class of CSI Connect college interns graduated in July 2022. Interns who do well during the program are encouraged to apply for employment at CSI Companies or one of its clients after graduation. Two students have begun full-time careers as a software engineer and a systems analyst at CSI Companies.

“My experience as a tech intern at CSI was eye-opening. It was the kind of hands-on experience I needed to catapult my career in tech. I gained a range of valuable skills both related to my tech background and nuggets of wisdom I’ve gained along the way with the help of my mentors. The more effort I put into this program, the more I reaped the benefits. Everyone is willing to teach as long as I was willing to learn. CSI Connect was truly an amazingly unique experience!” said Brianna Moreland, former college intern turned CSI Business Analyst.

“We have changed the economic position of several students and introduced others to the tech industry,” Fulmore-Hardwick said. “The CSI Connect program promotes diversity in technology and encourages these students to remain in Northeast Florida after they graduate.”
