The Center for International Trade Development (CITD) welcomed ten new interns into its Fall 2013 Internship Program. The Internship Program, a collaboration between the Skyline College Career Resources Center, the Youth Entrepreneurship Program (YEP) and the new Retail Hospitality & Tourism Program (RHT), provides real-world job experience to students interested in business, international trade, international tourism and other related industries. Interns are also eligible to receive college credit through the Cooperative Education Program.
On Tuesday, September 24, the BACITD held an orientation and workshop for the new internship class. Interns were given assessments to determine specific areas of interest and were treated to a presentation on the importance of obtaining job skills. The orientation featured speakers from the Career Resource Center, YEP, CITD and the RHT program. All programs offered their support and resources to the interns.
Via the Internship program students are exposed to valuable experiences such as:
- Networking events
- Business Seminars
- Trade Conferences
- International Delegation Events and Meetings
- In-bound Trade Missions
- And more!
The BACITD provides internship opportunities each academic semester to all Skyline College students regardless of their field of study. We congratulate our new class of interns and welcome them to the CITD family.
