The sites listed below are only a sample of what's available out there. Students can start their search for internships by checking for Cooperative Work Experience (CWE) postings in Gaucho Jobs. CWE is managed by each academic department offering the course. Most of our Career Technical programs offer CWE, but you need to contact the Department Chair of the academic department closely associated with your opportunity. For additional details, visit www.saddleback.edu/cwe

Securing an Internship is much like searching for a job. Be prepared to show your best in a tailored Resume and Cover Letter. Be ready to highlight your value to the employer through experiences you've had and achievements through your academic and other employment/volunteer work. Be ready to network with professionals at the company you want to intern at because it often comes down to who knows you!
