Finding an Internship

There are two main ways to identify internship opportunities:

  1. Pre-approved Internships
    1. The CLA List of Internship Partners
    2. HDEV faculty sponsored internships (available on BeachBoard soon)

      Students who choose a pre-approved internship must:

  1. Email the Internship Initiation Form to Ana Canela (Canela@csulb.edu) by Friday, December 10 by 5:00 PM
  2. Complete with your supervisor the Sponsor Signature Form (via Docusign) by December 17 at 5:00 PM.


  1. Alternative Internships
    1. Find an alternative/off-list internship related to your career goals in your community or by word of mouth*
    2. Search indeed.com, internships.com, idealist.com, LinkedIn, Glassdoor.com, and other career-related websites for your area of interest*

*If you choose to pursue an internship that is not on the pre-approved lists, you must:

  1. Email the Internship Initiation Form to Ana Canela (Canela@csulb.edu) by Monday, December 6 at 12:00 PM (noon)
  2. Complete with your supervisor the Petition for Placement Exceptions form (automatically generated) by December 10 at 5:00 PM. If your petition for a placement exception is denied, please work with the Internship Coordinator to find a placement with a pre-approved site.
  3. If approved, complete with your supervisor the Sponsor Signature Form (via Docusign) by December 17 at 5:00 PM.

After you have read the resources and procedures carefully, please contact the HDEV Internship Coordination, Dr. Kimberly Kelly (Kim.Kelly@csulb.edu) with questions.
