The SDHC Internship Program provides current undergraduate and graduate students with the opportunity to work on projects under the guidance and mentorship of SDHC management staff.
SDHC educates and prepares interns for multifaceted exposure to all functions within a potential affordable housing career so that they may become better acquainted with the affordable housing industry.
Full- time enrolled students must be junior, senior or graduate level with a minimum GPA of 2.0 and not graduating before December of the current year. Students must attend University of California San Diego (UCSD), University of San Diego (USD), San Diego State University (SDSU), Point Loma Nazarene University (PLNU), or California State University San Marcos to qualify.
Interns are not to exceed 20 hours per week and are under agreement with SDHC for a period of one year. SDHC works a Compressed Work Schedule (CWS), whereby all employees create a schedule within the agency’s core hours, 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and work the same days and share the same day off. SDHC’s offices are closed every other Friday.
Internships are paid at $15.00 per hour.
Available internships are posted on university job boards and shared with department chairs. Applicants should carefully review individual internship descriptions to make sure that they meet all criteria before submitting a complete application packet to firstname.lastname@example.org
