Frequently Asked Questions for Students
Q: How do I get started?
A: Your first step to registering for and completing an internship is to complete the Job Skills Workshop. Review the website at www.msjc.edu/cte/cwee for the updated workshop schedule.

Q: How do I find an employer who is hiring an intern?
