BAEC Prepares Students for the Future

Fall 2018 InternsWith the Bay Area Entrepreneur Center’s Internship Job Shadow Program in its third year, a new set of five student interns are ready and eager to learn essential business skills to prepare for their future.

BAEC provides this Internship Program for students to receive real-world career experience. This Internship Job Shadow Program has proven that students benefit from experience in an office and entrepreneurial setting before their education at Skyline College is completed. The program aids students in developing the skills they will need to enter into the workforce.

Interns work on projects that aim to grow their marketing, communication, leadership and organization skills.  Students also enhance their soft skills, learn how to improve their resume, develop their professional network and are referred to other career and educational opportunities. To date, twelve students have been placed in jobs as a result of the Internship Job Shadow Program.

The program was created for students get a better understanding of what career path they would like to pursue in their future and to build experience on their resume. Companies ask for years of experience for entry level jobs and expect students to know how to work and conduct themselves outside of an educational environment. For three years, the Bay Area Entrepreneur Center has been working at rounding out these aspects of students’ lives.
