Work experience is crucial for anyone
who wants to jump start a career in a technical field. Our
Work Experience program lets you earn college credit while
you gain practical experience.
Contact Greg Differding (CIS Work Experience Coordinator) or Tim Buckles (Graphic Design Work Experience Coordinator) prior to the semester you wish to do your internship to discuss your qualifications, potential opportunities, and other program requirements.
Then enroll in CIS 267 for 1,2, 3, or 4 units. You'll
be expected to work 60 hours per unit over the semester (roughly
4 hours per week per unit). In addition to enrolling in CIS 267,
you also need to be enrolled in a minimum of 3 additional units
(other than CIS 267) and be actively pursuing a degree or
certificate program in the CIS Department.
If you are interested in gaining that all important experience required for a great resume, now is the time to start planning for an internship. Contact Greg Differding well in advance of the semester you desire an internship so that an appropriate company/position can be found.
You will need to provide a draft resume and/or a web design portfolio prior to your first meeting with the CIS Work Experience Coordinator.
