“Working with our intern from Mt. SAC's Work Experience Program has been invaluable. Our intern was able to work with us for two semesters and she was handling certain responsibilities on her own. She knew what was expected of her and she didn’t need any supervision. Her help was so appreciated by our team and she was able to train the next interns as well.”

What Students Are Saying

I cannot be more thankful [the] Work Experience Program exists! As today's job market is extremely competitive and any work experience opportunity is very hard to come by, it gave the necessary foot in the door within my major's industry. Not only did I learn and gain skills in a real world setting, but both the program coordinator and the professor gave me very beneficial advice and tips to utilize in my job search and career. I am already seeing the pay off with more calls for interviews.

Participating in the Work Experience Program was an invaluable experience. I had the privilege of meeting some wonderful people and gained knowledge that I wouldn't have been able to learn through a textbook. I would recommend this to anyone that is looking to get some hands on experience in the field/career that they pursuing. 

Carlos Oro, Nutrition Student, City of Claremont Senior Services  

“With the help of Ms. Finley in the Business Division, I was able to be part of internship program at Cal Poly Pomona.  I had an exceptional experience working for the Bronco Dreamers Center. It was an honor to work alongside so many highly motivated students and engaging professors. While there I learned many things about the struggles of undocumented students on the campus of Cal Poly Pomona and beyond, I am proud to say that given work experience I was also able to contribute to the success of the center in tangible ways. I will be forever changed by this experience and will likely devote this next chapter of my life to working on issues of social justice and equity in our times.”

Josie Guillen, Business Management Student, Cal Poly Pomona Bronco Dreamers Resource Center 

“The internship program at Mt. SAC is what helped me change careers from HR to IT since I knew nothing about computers.

The Career Specialist Dawn Finley and the Professors truly want you to succeed and will support you on your journey.”
