Career Center Events and Announcements!


The last day to register for an internship course is Friday, September 13, 2013. If you need course credit for an unpaid internship, register TODAY!

Federal labor law requires that students participating in an internship must either A) be paid by the employer; or, B) be enrolled in an internship for-credit course. Do you have an unpaid internship and need course credit? If so, register for one of USC’s 15+ internship courses. Take a look at our list of internship courses offered at USC — if you have questions, stop by our office in STU B1.

F-1 international students participating in a paid internship are required to receive Curricular Practical Training (CPT) authorization from OIS which requires enrolling in an internship course at USC. F-1 international students participating in an unpaid internship should contact OIS for more details regarding work authorization requirements.

Are you the first person in your family to go to college? Take a look at our First Generation College Student Mentor Program! This program will provide real world exposure to the working world through a mentorship that focuses on professional and career development. Students will be paired with USC alumni who also were first-generation college students. Apply now! The deadline to apply is September 11, 2013.
