Thank you for your interest in the TCC Internship Program. Our mission is to provide TCC students of all disciplines with tangible work experience that complements the classroom, creating better prepared candidates for the workplace.
TCC's interns work in a temporary position with an emphasis on education and experience. Interns range in age from young adults to those later in life who may be seeking new career skills. Internships can pave the way to employment opportunities, including part-time and full-time paid positions.
