Looking for experience in a field? Not able to find the right job? Doing an Internship could be the right choice. As an SBCC student, you have lots of options at your fingertips to help you find an internship that is right for you.
The Job Connection is your online one-stop shop to find full and part-time job opportunities, as well as internships and volunteer positions. Use the keyword Intern in the Employer tab to research employers who have let us know they are willing to host interns. SBCC is unable to research the integrity of each potential employer. Therefore, students are urged to undertake this responsibility. Use caution and common sense when applying for any position with an organization or applying for a job with a residential address.
Job & Internship Fairs are hosted by the Career Center typically in the fall and spring. Dozens of local and regional employers attend the SBCC Job and Internship Fairs with jobs and internships for SBCC students.
Employers occasionally "table" on campus in order to meet directly with students, or set up on-campus interviews. Check the tables in front of the cafeteria or on the West Campus walkways for employers or organizations looking for interns.
You may want to do an internship for college credit. Enrolling in Work Experience 290 or a department-specific internship class is the only way to complete a college-supervised internship and receive credit for your internship.
