Co-op and Internships
Co-0p and Internship postings are for current SFSC students and SFSC alumni only. Visit the College Career Network to explore the nationwide internship database.
Internship provides opportunities to learn about careers and to gain valuable work experience, but no college credit is earned. Most internships are unpaid, although some provide a small salary.
Cooperative (Co-op) education provides opportunities to learn about careers by spending time in a typical workplace while also earning up to 3 hours of college credit in a term (up to a maximum of 7 credits total). Most co-op opportunities are unpaid, although occasionally paid positions are available. Contact the Career Development Center to arrange a co-op experience.
Work Study Positions
Each term student employment is available at SFSC campuses for short-term or temporary assignments through the Work Study Program. Work Study provides you an opportunity to earn extra income to assist with educational costs, and to gain valuable real-world work experience. Through a Work Study assignment, you work in a variety of college departments, assisting with clerical work and other support duties as assigned. You earn the current minimum wage per hour for a maximum of 10 to 20 hours per week.
You must apply for this program and meet financial and academic guidelines to qualify. Contact the Career Development Center to learn more about the process and submit your Work Study Application. Then, log into College Central Network to search and apply for work study positions. You can also create your resume (required as part of the work study application process) on College Central Network.
