Why hire a Los Rios student?

Our unique approach to training and internships ensures employers work with interns that align with their companies and job descriptions. Each student is pre-screened by campus stuff. We then review their interests, skills, and resumes to ensure a match between the student and organization. Because many of our students are non-traditional college students, they also bring skills and experience beyond a degree program.

What is the Work Experience and Internship Program?

The Work Experience and Internship Program is an academic program offered at all four of our student-centered colleges focused on experiential learning. It allows students to apply what they've learned in the classroom to a work environment while earning college credit.

Work Experience helps students develop technical skills and non-technical skills in their field of study.

How do I partner with Los Rios if I already have an internship program in my organization?
