Sponsoring Interns

For internships as well as career placement, our Department has developed a strong partnership with the career center. The SJSU career center is a place where the community looks for SpartaJobs employees/interns in addition to the place where students can look for internships and jobs. The SJSU Career Center is a web-based resource, completely searchable and designed to make it easy for students to find and make connections with community employers. The career center also has numerous workshops and materials related to both Internships [pdf] and jobs.

The Spring/Summer/Fall internship advisors/instructors are:

Laura Shroder ( for Hospitality Management 191A Internships.

Faranak Memarzadeh ( for Hospitality Management 191B Internships.

Information about our department internship requirements, as well as links to internship forms, are available online.
