Host an Internship for Your Business

By providing an internship through St. Petersburg College, you give students a practical workplace experience that turns academic theory into professional skills. Internships are also a great way to screen future employees and bring in talented students to contribute to the organization's goals and mission. Since we began offering internships for credit in 2009, we have seen an 85% increase in the number offered. Across Tampa Bay, you can be part of the movement to build the local workforce with skilled employees, tailored to your needs by participating.

Hire our Talented Graduates

When you hire an SPC graduate, you're getting a highly qualified and prepared employee. In fact, 99 percent of employers surveyed indicated they would hire another SPC graduate. And our alumni rank first in the state of Florida - and fifth in the nation - among two-year colleges - for possessing the most valuable job skills, according to the Brookings Institution.

Teaching what matters

"At St. Petersburg College, they see the changing nature of technology and they're not teaching courses based on the past - they're basing their courses on where it's going in the future."

Larry Jopek, VP Marketing & Community Partnerships, WEDU
