We here at the Office of Student Professional Development hope your spring semester is going well, and that as the semester comes to a close you begin thinking about summer 2018 and beyond. We offer a variety of internships over the summer, which is a great option for those of you concerned about how to manage this valuable experience with your current course load.
The first round of summer internships have been posted to Synergy, and will continue to be added throughout May. You may also seek out positions through HireFresnoState or other career sites such as LinkedIn, which can be submitted with a proposal (attached) to our office.
FAQ's about summer internships:
