The Career Center advertises internships and jobs and also holds job/internship fairs on campus several times a year (sponsorships or representation at these fairs are available). To be added to a California-wide listing of jobs or internships, register your opportunities online at


Please fill out the Request for Interns form (link) to help us better understand work requirements and provide potential student interns with site contact information.

Once a student is placed with your organization, the RTVF Internship Contract (link) must be filled out to establish the student assignment with the site. Students must not begin work before submitting a contract with required signatures from the internship site.

After the site-university relationship is legally established (paperwork is completed), the site is responsible for three tasks:

  1. Provide relevant work experience for the student intern.

  2. Supervise student's work at the internship site.

  3. Evaluate the student upon completion of the internship.

A site supervisor may use the Site Evaluation form (link) to evaluate the intern, or may submit a personal letter of evaluation, if preferred. Please note that there is a deadline for submitting the site evaluation; the intern will not receive credit for the RTVF 198 course without a Site Evaluation.

Important Notice

Interns must be registered for the RTVF 198 course while they are doing the internship. Retroactive credit is not allowed, according to department and university policy. 

The RTVF 198 syllabus (link) contains a thorough explanation of all requirements. At the end of the syllabus is the semester schedule that lists the various deadlines for required paperwork.
