BAEC Fall Internship Program StudentsThe Bay Area Entrepreneur Center (BAEC) welcomed its fall internship class! This semester BAEC is hosting three Skyline College students; Andrew Alotis, Eduardo Jauregui and Jody Gonzales. Throughout this semester, the interns will be working off-campus at the BAEC and on campus with the BEPP Division, Study Abroad, the Center for International Trade Development and the Retail Hospitality & Tourism Program. Throughout the semester the interns will learn and hone-in on a variety of technical and soft skills including: marketing and outreach, business communication, client relations, use of design software, office organization and customer service.

As a part of the program, the interns will get the opportunity to experience some innovative events at Skyline College and the BAEC. Some of these events include the White House Initiative Event, My Scary World Workshop, Changing the Face of Entrepreneurship Kick Off Event and the  BAEC Action Summit.

Intern Andrew Alotis went to the Access to Capital/ Lender’s Fair on Wednesday September 28 at the College of San Mateo to promote the services at BAEC and the entrepreneur opportunities with Skyline College. Eduardo Juaregui is a part of the Base 11 STEM Entrepreneur Accelerator Program learning the ins and outs of entrepreneurship and making prototypes of solutions to world problems in the Fab Lab on the Skyline Campus. Jody Gonzales is an entrepreneur-in-the-making and will be helping to promote the new certificate programs at the College.

Each semester the BAEC recruits a new cohort of hard working, self-starters to join the Internship Job Shadow Team.
