INTERNSHIP COURSES

Work Experience Internship Courses offer job readiness preparation; job seeking and coaching; application, resume, interviewing instruction; and screening. It is the responsibility of the student to secure their own internship placement. Upon placement, the student begins supervised employment that extends classroom learning into the work environment. Students eligible for internships will have declared a major, have completed courses in their major or have acquired a high level of skill in their discipline, and are ready for on-the-job experience in a paid or unpaid position. Students will acquire new abilities, knowledge, and skills to prepare for a career in their chosen field.

The purpose of the Work Experience Internship Course is to assist you in obtaining on the job training to enable you to become a more efficient and valuable employee, while providing a practical education that supplements and enhances classroom theory.  It is the student’s responsibility to secure their own internship placement.  Once you have established your internship placement, please contact the Work Experience Department (707) 527-4329 to schedule an appointment with the Internship Coordinator.

Please read about the course with all instruction on Canvas.
