Internship/Practicum Coordination Internships and Practica are structured learning experiences in a work setting that involve a partnership between a student, Marymount California University, and a particular company/organization. In an internship/practicum, a student will bridge and strengthen the connection between education and career. Through the involvement in an internship/practicum experience, the student will build career development skills and strategies in the four major career management areas:
• Self-Assessment – access to tools and resources to connect student interests and traits to majors, occupations, industries and companies.
• Professional Credentials – access to workshops/webinars to develop professional resumes, cover letters and interview skills.
• Networking – introducing a comprehensive approach to one of the most important ingredients in establishing a successful career. Students will connect with alumni, social networks and partnered employers to create a lasting career network.
• The Job Marketplace – introduce leading edge strategies and resources to navigate the complex terrain of companies and organizations to identify appropriate employers and culture to achieve a thriving career.
