Jump-Start Your Career With USC Internships

Career Center         USC is a university with numerous research opportunities, a rich campus life and an interdisciplinary approach to education that allows students to pursue disparate academic interests. Ultimately, our hope is that these attributes will prepare students to be leaders and innovators and to contribute to the world after they graduate. Part of that preparation means giving students opportunities for internships; to apply what they’ve learned in the classroom to a real-world setting. Through internships students are exposed to different occupations and gain real life experience.
         Having Los Angeles in our backyard gives our undergraduates an edge in the professional world. Los Angeles is a city where trends begin. We are a city of pioneers in the arts, entertainment, technology, business and communication. Naturally, recruiters from premiere businesses and corporations located within the city are attracted to the skilled and professional students that our university produces and offer numerous opportunities.
         Students are able to access these internship opportunities through several avenues on campus. They can hear about an internship through a professor, a classmate, or by approaching the career center in their respective departments. Even if a student is looking for an internship outside of California, they can simply access the iNet Internship Consortium. There is an endless amount of personal and digital resources available for our students; they don’t need to search very far to find an internship. More specifically, the USC Career Center is a “one stop shop” for students searching for job opportunities. They offer workshops, career fairs and advisement to help undergraduates with resumes, interview etiquette, and anything else you can think of when it comes to pursuing a job or an internship. The faculty and staff work hard to make sure our students have the skills to be competitive and adaptive in an ever-changing economy.
         I’ve included a list of corporations and organizations that have a history of recruiting young Trojans. However, this is only a very small slice of a big pie. Finally, feel free to watch the video below that explains in detail what the USC Career Center offers and to learn about some of the students’ past internships.
