Clearfield County Career & Technology Center
CCCTC is accepting resumes for summer internships. If anyone is interested in taking an internship with the CCCTC, please have them send their resume to either fwalk@ccctc.org or rlefebvre@ccctc.org. The internship is unpaid, but we are able to work out a schedule that is convenient for the student (especially since they only need either 150 or 300 hours, that amount of hours seems to get eaten up quick), there will be an interview process before starting the internship.
