What is an Internship?

An Internship is a short-term, learning experience designed to provide exposure, training and hands-on work experience within a field related to the programs offered at State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota.

In today's fast-paced business environment, it is important that new personnel are up to speed as quickly as possible.  For entry-level needs, one-time only projects or simply to assist during your busiest season, the Internship Program at State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota is the way to go!

Here's Why:

The internship brings together three key players:  the employer, the intern, and SCF working towards an employment experience where all can benefit.   

  • The employer secures inexpensive and talented personnel by providing exposure, training and hands-on work for special projects. 
  • The employer can use a proven job performance to help with a hiring decision.
  • Interns have successfully completed at least 30 credit hours towards their degree and bring fresh ideas and current technical skills. 
  • Interns are motivated to perform well because they need the experience and expertise your company provides. 
  • SCF's Career Resource Center screens applicants and sends you resumes of qualified candidates, saving you time.
  • SCF's graduates are prepared for the workforce.
