Internship and Career Services

Internship Programs

The Internship and Career Center
2nd Floor, South Hall 530-752-2855;

Gain practical skills that will transfer to the workplace. Apply your coursework. Launch your career. Take advantage of hundreds of internships organized through the Internship and Career Center (ICC) or initiate your own. There is literally something for everyone.

An internship may be full time or part time, credit or non-credit, voluntary or paid, depending on your skills, needs and interests and the availability of openings. Internship experiences must emphasize learning and be supervised by a professional. Academic credit is awarded for experiences planned and approved in advance by a sponsoring faculty member. In addition, a student can have their internships recorded on their academic transcript through the Transcript Notation process available at the ICC.

The Internship and Career Center (ICC)

2nd Floor, South Hall 530-752-2855;

The Internship and Career Center (ICC) works with undergraduate, masters, and Ph.D students, postdoctoral scholars and recent alumni. The ICC can help you identify your abilities and interests and relate them to career options; gain access to practical experience to increase your competitiveness in the job market; and find out how and where to look for employment. Attend ICC workshops on finding an internship or part time job, beginning a job search, developing a resume, networking and preparing for an interview. Resources on these topics are also available at the ICC website.

ICC's Career Resource Manual, available at http://icc.ucdavis.edu, provides resume guidelines, interview tips and employment information. Also available at the ICC website is Aggie Job Link, an online database of internships, student jobs and career positions that is updated daily. The ICC coordinates employer visits to campus for company information sessions and on campus interviews.

The Internship and Career Center, located in South Hall, provides comprehensive career services for UC Davis Master's and Ph.D. students, and Postdoctoral scholars (MPP).
