Concord General Services is looking for their next Maintenance / Operations Flex Technician intern! This paid full-time internship program launched in 2018 as an entry-level job opportunity to train an individual looking to start a career in public works. Interns are trained across the department’s divisions to gain experience and certifications that can later transition them into an open permanent full-time position. So far, there have been four successful interns to complete this program and each individual continues to thrive within their new permanent position.
Conner Bailey was the first Maintenance / Operations Flex Technician. He learned a variety of skills as he completed on-the-job training for administration, solid waste, public property maintenance, water utilities, and road maintenance. After four quick months as an intern, Conner developed the skills needed to confidently apply and be offered the position of Laborer / Truck Driver within the Highway and Utilities Division. His internship experience and proven work ethic set him ahead of other applicants and ultimately landed him the job. He has since earned his commercial driver’s license (CDL) and has been laboring and operating trucks, backhoes, loaders, and other equipment to maintain the City’s roadways. Watch Conner’s testimonial video to learn more about his internship experience.
