3 College Sophomore

Career Services: I can not comment too much on this because I think they have better services then what I encountered, The general career services center wasn't much help when I went in, they just handed me a piece of paper with potential interns for my major and that was it.

I have been told that some of career services groups for clubs like the latin american club is amazing and you can actually join it no matter what race you are but I found out too late to try it out.

The only good thing is the internship fair they hold every spring and I managed to find myself an intern through that.

3 College Junior

Career Services: The school offers a variety of jobs for students at Santa Monica College.
