Believe it or not, summer will be here before we know it and your college kid will be returning home, and most likely (hopefully?) be looking for a summer job. But before she pounds the pavement, you should tell her about SCVInternships.com.
SCVInternships.com, powered by the Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corporation (SCVEDC), provides resources for students seeking their first job, such as resume writing and interview preparation and follow-up, along with tips for making an internship successful. If you’re a student looking for a paid internship in the Santa Clarita Valley (SCV), this is your go-to website!
Did you know that the SCV is home to both large and small companies in the aerospace & defense, medical devices/biotech, advanced manufacturing, digital media & entertainment, and tech industries? This affords local students a wide variety of internship opportunities from computer science, finance and engineering to marketing, HR, and design.
Internships can provide huge growth opportunities for students such as:
• Learning more about their field or industry
• Applying knowledge learned in the lab or classroom to hands-on industry experience
• Accumulating evidence of abilities and skills
• Confirming they are on the right path
• Gaining valuable networking contacts
• Receiving mentorship opportunities and obtaining references for future jobs
• Making professional contacts and building relationships with co-workers, clients and supervisors
• Getting their foot in the door at a company with the potential to be hired after graduation
Now is the time for your students to be nailing down those summer internships. Give them a little nudge and email them this article, but most importantly, tell them to visit SCVInternships.com – new internship opportunities are being added each week!
