Internship & Career Center

Each year, the UC Davis Internship and Career Center, also known as ICC, places approximately 6,000 students in internships that provide practical experience to complement coursework. Full-time during the summer and part-time throughout the academic year, Davis students gain experience in advertising agencies, retail businesses, financial and consulting firms, environmental protection agencies, hospitals and clinics, import-export companies, law offices, high tech companies, manufacturing firms, schools, counseling centers, museums, regulatory and enforcement agencies, public relations firms, radio and TV stations, zoos, and hundreds of other places.

Internship and Career Center staff builds strong collaborative relationships with internship sponsors and ensures that students work with qualified mentors in settings conducive to learning. Over the years, thousands of agencies, businesses and firms have sponsored Davis students. A few examples are Apple Computer, the California Department of Water Resources, Caltrans, Davis Public Schools, Delloitte and Touche, Genentech, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Gap Inc., General Mills, Hays Trucking, Hewlett Packard, Industrial Light and Magic, Intel Corporation, Mervyns of California, Phillips Chiropractic, the Sacramento Zoo, Senator Barbara Boxer, the UC Davis Medical Center, the US Bureau of Land Reclamation, the US Department of State, the US Forest Service, and Walt Disney Imagineering, and the YMCA.

The ICC plays a fundamental role in the organization of internships, work-study projects, and career opportunities for many UC Davis students. Statistics show that the professional relationships made during experiential education are often the determining factor in the decisions associated with career employment hiring. Employers often select new employees from interns they have sponsored.
