Internships

Internships are supervised, workplace learning experiences for students in which they learn and apply academic knowledge and skill and gain an understanding of their field of study.

Internships may be part- or full-time, be paid or unpaid, and may take place in a business or non-profit organization. Internships can be located through computer searches, the Alamo Colleges website or can be student created by reaching out to businesses or organizations which interest the students.

Students, based on their career goal or area of concentration, may apply to compete for an internship or may create their own opportunity. For example, a student from the Business and Entrepreneurial Institute interested in becoming a computer programmer may accept a full-time paid summer internship with a corporation's business development department.

College intern students benefit from internship experiences as they become familiar with the industry, make professional contacts, and understand the various roles of professionals in the workplace.

Alamo Colleges students may also consider applying for local, regional and national internship opportunities. Many of those opportunities are listed on this website, categorized by career goals or areas of concentration to simplify searching.
