Please join us in welcoming our new class of interns into our Student Internship Job-Shadow Program for the fall 2015 semester! The Internship Job-Shadow Program, provides an opportunity for Skyline College students to receive training and exposure in real-world business environments. The program is a collaboration between the Skyline College Career Resources Center, the Global Learning Programs & Services Division (GLPS) and the Retail Hospitality & Tourism Program (RHT). Through the job-shadow program, students interested in business, international trade, logistics, marketing, international tourism and other related industries are exposed to professional development and networking opportunities. Our interns are also eligible to receive up to three units of college credit through the Cooperative Education Program.
All students participating in the program receive an assessment determining specific areas of interest and are trained on a range of interpersonal job skills, or soft-skills. In addition, the Internship Job Shadow program students are exposed to valuable experiences such as:
- Networking events
- Business Seminars
- Job Training Workshops
- Trade Conferences
- International Delegation Events and Meetings
- Campus events
- In-bound Trade Missions
- And more!
The GLPS division provides internship and job-shadow 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 GLPS team!
The Internship Job Shadow Program is made possible with funding from the President’s Innovation Fund.
