Benefits of the Internship Program
By participating in CCA's internship program, you gain from the abilities of a creative, motivated, and enthusiastic individual without needing to make a long-term commitment. You also have the opportunity to observe the student for potential permanent employment.

Do I have to Pay an Intern?
We strongly encourage employers to offer some compensation to interns to help put their work into a professional context. While compensation is up to the employer, we suggest students be paid $15 per hour.
To participate in the internship program, a student must be of junior or senior standing in the program. They may work for 5 to 20 hours per week during the semester or full time during the summer to earn one to three units. In order to satisfy the internship requirements for three units, 225 hours of work must be completed.
