Among the bay area companies that provide St Petersburg College (SPC) students’ with internships each semester is Netwolves. Recently, Steve Marcinek of Netwolves, who is also a professor for the College of Computer & Information Technology at SPC, mentioned that the key to landing an internship and subsequently a full-time job, is networking. This proved true when a customer came in one day to see him and inquired about the Cisco Networking Academy. As the conversation ensued, business cards were exchanged and a referral was given to Susan Biszewski-Eber, College-wide internship Coordinator for SPC. Marcinek further stated that “once interest is established, follow through.”
