CSU East Bay would like all students to have at least one internship experience before graduation. Meeting with a Career Counselor in AACE within your first year of admission, is essential to finding an internship and job placement in your career field. Since finding an internship experience is a student driven process, we encourage you to start early in researching and applying for an internship placement. Due to the lengthy internship selection process it is best to start no later than the semester prior to when you expect to start your internship experience.
We encourage all undergraduate and graduate students to complete at least 1 internship experience prior to graduation. Attend Internship Week, Career Fairs, Internship Bootcamps, and meet with a career counselor. Our office can help you! Watch video regarding the resources and services we provide:
