What is the Internship Orientation?

 
This is a required meeting for students at the beginning of the internship, before enrolling in the internship class. Students who have attended an Orientation in a previous semester need not attend again.
 
Students receive all the pertinent information regarding internship responsibilities, how to make the most of their internship, and other details about the program. There are no weekly class meetings for the internship class. It is an online class.
 
The Internship Orientation meetings usually take place at the beginning of each semester, and before the semester begins. The orientations are not for students who are still searching for an internship. Students who are looking for internship opportunities are invited to Internship Drop-In Meetings for help! (Also check out our "Finding Internship Opportunities" page.)
 
DROP-IN TIMES: Mondays 2:30-4:30 p.m., Tuesdays 10 a.m. – noon, Wednesdays 3 – 4:30 p.m., Thursdays 10 a.m. – noon.
 
IMPORTANT! Only attend an Internship Orientation Session if:
  • You have found an internship and the employer has agreed to let you start the internship this semester.
  • You are a continuing SMC student and successfully completed at least 6 units at Santa Monica College in the previous fall/spring semester and you received at least a grade C or better in both classes attempted.
  • You would like to enroll in an Internship Class to receive academic credit for your Paid or Unpaid internship.
                                                     Please be on time as latecomers will not be admitted.
 Call or come to the Internship Program office located at the Career Services Center for more information. Our telephone number is (310) 434-4337. We are located in the Counseling Village, east of the bicycle park on Pearl Street.
