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
