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. The remainder of the session will be spent learning how to prepare for and interact effectively in an interview, including tips for virtual and face-to-face settings. 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 upcoming info sessions will be held on Thursday, January 19 at 11:30 a.m. and Monday, January 23 at 3:00 p.m. in Room 230, Bldg. 2 lecture hall


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.


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.


You will earn 1 academic credit for your completion of the program, and you will receive a stipend for satisfactory completion of your work during your internship. Businesses may choose to hire interns after the completion of the program, should a suitable position be available.
