Vocational Internships

For most students, getting a good job is the major goal of their educational plan and EOPS has developed a student Vocational Internship Program (VIP) to meet that goal! Many employers want to hire only experienced workers, but how will a person get experience without a job? That's where we come in. The VIP places a student in a paid internship during the spring semester. Placement is in the vocational field of training pertaining to the student's major
. Many interns have been hired as regular employees after completing their internships.
