Looking for internships can be tough, but here are a few tips for your search!
1. Visit Aztec Career Connection
Aztec Career Connection is a website that is designed just for San Diego State students and alumni. There can be a thousand postings at any time including: internships (paid and unpaid), full time and part time jobs, on-campus or off-campus, and even volunteer opportunities to build that resume! Visit us here: Aztec Career Connection. If you’ve never logged on, you’ll find it to be quite easy.
2. Visit Your Major Department Office
Some majors require you to complete an internship. Some employers will require you to earn credit while completing an internship with their organization. Or you may want to have an internship course on your transcript. If any of this applies to you, consult the Department Internship Contact for your major/program. If you are completing an unpaid internship, you MUST be enrolled in an internship course. Follow this link: https://goo.gl/OlXER7 and you will find the contacts for each major’s internships.
