Skyline College Students Excel in the Internship Job Shadow Program

Internship Job Shadow ProgramOn Wednesday December 5, 2018, the Internship Job Shadow Program (IJSP) held a student recognition event to reflect on program learning experiences, recognize accomplishments of our student interns and to celebrate the end of the semester with a fun, “ugly” sweater workshop.

The Bay Area Entrepreneur Center of Skyline College (BAEC) is in its fourth year of serving students through the Internship Job Shadow Program. The fall cohort consisted of seven amazing student interns, all of whom shadowed under various programs across the campus. In addition to learning industry-related skills, the students completed and presented a team project where they set out to identify and solve problems in their world.

With support from Career and Workforce Programs, the BAEC provided this internship program for students to engage in a real-world career setting. This IJSP is a great way for students to benefit from hands-on career exploration while they pursue their education at Skyline College. The IJSP empowers students to define success for themselves. This program supports students in developing and enhancing the skills they will need to be successful, whether they decide to continue their education, contribute meaningfully to the workforce, pursue entrepreneurship as a career or all three!  We are excited to announce that one of our student interns, Peter Wang, has been offered a job because of his participation in the Internship Job Shadow Program this fall!

We are currently accepting applications for the spring 2018 academic semester.  The application can be found here: http://skylinebaec.org/internships.php. Please spread the word!
