Career, Internship, and Academic Resources


Researching Career and Academic Options

What Can I Do with this Major?  This is a great resource that shows the most common career outlets for people in a given major.  Note that at the bottom of each major's report, there is a list of industry-specific job search sites and professional organizations.   

O-Net O-Net is a career database powered by the US Dept of Labor and Statistics. Review reports of over 900 specific jobs to gain a deeper understanding of what tasks and activities people do as part of their jobs, education required, training opportunities, and salary/growth projections.  

Occupational Outlook Handbook: This is another site provided by the US Dept. of Labor and Statistics. It contains fewer specific job reports than O-Net, but some prefer the layout of this site to O-Net. 

California Career Zone: This site has several interactive features: take a lifestyle assessment to see how much money you need to make to support your lifestyle goals; watch videos about what it's like to work in a specific field; create a cover letter and/or resume with their interactive tool.  

CareerOneStop: Great reference guides for job-seekers with various backgrounds: military, career changers, 55+, and job seekers with a criminal record, to name a few. 

LACC Career and Educational Pathways: Research the degree and certificate options offered at LACC. Click on specific programs to see which classes are needed to complete a given degree. Always speak with a counselor when planning your courses! 

 


Internship Resources

Participating in an internship is an excellent way to gain experience in a field, build your resume, and enhance your professional network. Links to internship boards are below. You can also make an appointment with a career counselor or intern to discuss additional opportunities that have been shared directly with us. 

Internship Boards

Indeed.com - Indeed.com lists internship opportunities as well as job opportunities. To view internship opportunities, list the field or company you are interested in, i.e., 'graphic design' and your location on the homepage, then 'search'. On the results page, additional filters will appear. Select the 'job type' filter & select internship to view opportunities. 

LinkedIn.com - Similar to indeed.com, LinkedIn lists internships and jobs. Select the 'jobs' icon at the top of the page and apply filters for location & internship. If you apply for a position through LinkedIn.com, be sure you have a current profile.  The Career Center can help you create one - even with no or limited work experience. 

wayup.com - Specializes in internships & entry-level jobs.  You can search opportunities without signing up through links at the bottom of the homepage.
