Clairemont High interns are all business

Student interns from Clairemont High's Academy of Business and Technology just completed two months of real-world work experience and all found teamwork, communication, and adhering to deadlines at the heart of it.

“Having communication with my co-workers and supervisor is key to getting things done the right way”, said senior Selena Valdivia.

“Deadlines will always be a part of life and you will always have them,” said student Brandon Plascencia.
California Coast Credit Union, Manpower, Neighborhood House Association, City of San Diego, Rawdin-Baron Financial, Inc. and others were the locations for 27 interns from Clairemont.

Internships are an integral part of academy, a specialized program at Clairemont High. Each senior is required to participate in a field internship during the spring semester and students leave the classroom several times a week to work at a local business where they take on real-world tasks and projects under the direction of an industry supervisor. Back at school, the students work with their instructor to reinforc the skills and knowledge needed to complete internship projects.

The AOBT gives students a competitive advantage by preparing them for college and career, with an emphasis in business and finance. Academy students grow to be innovative, articulate, and socially engaged young adults who take initiative in their communities and personal endeavors.
