Meet ACUA Staff: Sydney

Aug 09, 2023


Sydney is an Intern in ACUA's Human Resources Department. She has been with us through the sumer and is doing an amazing job!

We spoke with Sydney to learn about her experience working with ACUA:


How did you find out about the position?

I was looking for an internship in human resources, and the HR department chair at Rowan University made me aware of the open position at ACUA.

What has been the most beneficial part of your internship?

The most beneficial part of the internship has been the knowledge and experience I have obtained. I’ve had the opportunity to attend job fairs, interviews, attend new hire training, and have everyday interactions with applicants as well as my amazing coworkers.

Everyone at the ACUA has provided such a great work environment with constant support and motivation. Though I'm an intern, I've been treated like an equal by all of my co-workers, even managers and company executives treat me like a peer. Learning about ACUA operations and receiving tours of the wastewater treatment and solid waste facilities have given so much purpose to the work I do.

I’ve gained great understanding of the impact ACUA has on our surrounding communities and our environmental impact as a whole. Seeing the big picture, and what we're all working towards, emphasized how purposeful and important our work really is.

I am very proud to have worked for the ACUA and am grateful for the immeasurable knowledge and experience I have gained from my HR internship! 

What advice would you share with others interested in interning at ACUA?

Work for a company you're proud to be a part of, and find purpose in your work. The first step to this would be understanding what you're passionate about and what it is you want to dedicate your time to. It is such a great feeling seeing the direct impact of the work you're doing every day. When you dedicate so much time to your work, you should feel good about what you do. I care about environmental sustainability and clean energy. Working at the ACUA has been an outlet for me to contribute to a cause I'm passionate about.
