Work Experience and Internship Program

The Work Experience and Internship Program exists to help students have the best internship experience possible while earning units toward their degree or certificate.

Position Yourself for Success

Internships give you the chance to explore your interests, find out what inspires you, and build a professional network. Plus, internships often lead to full-time employment!

If you are already working in your chosen career path, then turning your job into an internship can help you increase your advancement opportunities – such as getting a promotion or taking on higher-level job responsibilities.
