Internships & Career Services

Hartnell College recognizes that internships and student work experience are gateways to the success of our students. This site provides information on experiential employment and education opportunities to students and recent alumni through collaboration with the campus community and local employers. This is a valuable opportunity for our students to apply their academic knowledge in the workforce arena and network with their future employers, giving them a further competitive edge.
