Q: What can you tell us about your office’s internship program?
A: The St. Johns County Clerk’s Office internship program is designed to expose college and high school students to a career in local government. This program will allow students to learn the vital roles the clerk’s office provides to residents by maintaining official records, collecting and distributing county funds, and many other important functions performed to assist the judiciary in court proceedings. There is both a paid and volunteer internship program and a commitment of at least four weeks is required, though you may commit to a full semester if desired. For more information and to apply to the program, you can call (904) 819-3605 or email the Human Resources Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
