Internship opportunities allow UC San Diego career employees to work part-time in other UC San Diego departments to obtain skills and knowledge needed for career enhancement. See Current Internships.
Informational interviews can be arranged to allow research and information gathering about UC San Diego jobs and departments.
To sign up as an information provider or to ask for a referral, contact Career Connection, (858) 822-2633, with the job title or field that you're interested in.
The Promotion Project provides training funds to encourage UC San Diego departments to hire and train UC San Diego career employees for openings in selected job classifications.
Advancement opportunities are created for UC San Diego employees while offering monetary support for training within the first six months of the appointment.
Individual career consultations and resume reviews
can help you clarify and achieve your career goals.
Mock interviews are an excellent way to prepare for an upcoming interview.
To arrange one, send the following to Career Connection:
- Your resume
- A job posting you are interested in or have applied for (a file, not a link - since those can expire)
- What you want to work on for your interviewing skills
- Days/times that will work for you in the next two weeks
We usually require that you take the Job Interviewing Skills (login required) workshop, or its equivalent, beforehand, since to get the most out of a mock interview you should treat it as if it were a “real” interview, rather than spending the time going over interviewing tips and techniques.
