WORK

Local businesses will supply a project-based work experience during this semester-long internship course. Working alongside a mentor from the company, you will gain the skills and knowledge necessary to complete the project. Apply directly to a particular internship, to ensure it is something in which you are interested.

LEARN

In preparation for your internship, learn how to tailor a resume and cover letter, give a winning job interview, and make a compelling presentation. Throughout the program, you will learn not only from your mentor at work, but from a faculty advisor and through your fellow students during the weekly class. Finally, you will share your experience in a presentation.

EARN

You will earn 1 academic credit for your completion of the program, and you will be paid $10.50/hour up to 60 hours for the work completed during your internship. Businesses may choose to hire interns after the completion of the program, should a suitable position be available.

Information Sessions

At the information sessions, UNM-LA staff will explain more about the program, including the benefits and expectations, and answer any questions you may have. If, after learning more, you are interested in applying to the program, the remainder of the session will be spent learning how to prepare for and interact effectively in a remote, online interview. We want you to go into the process with your best foot forward.

There are limited opportunities available for Community Internship Collaboration, so be sure to attend an information session to learn how you can attain one of these competitive positions!

The Community Internship Collaboration (CIC) was established to fill an employment gap in the community and expand partnerships between the Laboratory, small business owners, and schools. The program’s goals are to provide meaningful work experiences for students, meet area workforce needs, and to develop the future workforce for our community, the region, and the Laboratory.
