Intern Development Program

The SCC offers continuing college students the opportunity to gain valuable work experience through our 12-week summer internship program.

  • Participate in professional development and social activities with fellow interns.

As a result of interning with the SCC, you will be prepared for exciting future career opportunities.

Interns may have the option to extend their internships into the academic year. Our internship program is a talent pipeline for entry-level positions as business needs permit.
