Need a Summer Internship/Job?

If you’re not doing Pipeline this year, its not too early to start looking for a summer job or internship!

The Department of Labor has this cool Beta site where you can look for jobs and internships.

The best part?: most of the internships are PAID! YES!!

Anyways, take a look and maybe you’ll find something. Due dates for certain programs are coming up so keep that in mind.

Good luck!

October 19th – College Day at Pomona/Pitzer Part 2

Hello again,

In case the previous post was a bit confusing, I would like to clarify it.The Career Ladder in the morning (8-noon) is at Western University and part of the usual Health Career Ladder Programming that WesternU does. The College Day activities starts at 2pm at Pitzer. We thought it would be easier for Sherman and other students to come out for the whole day instead of a few hours.

Here is the Flyer Detailing the College Day activities at 2pm starting at Pitzer below.

October 19th – College Day at Pitzer/Pomona!

Hello Pipeline Family,

We are having an College Day event at Pitzer/Pomona on Saturday, October 19th. The following email is from Simone, the newest member of the Pipeline team.


Dear Students and Families,

Greetings from the Pipeline to College program at Pitzer College! First of all, thank you to all the students and families for being part of this program.

Second, I’d like to briefly introduce myself. My name is Simone Prince-Eichner, and I have just joined the Pipeline program as the College Prep Outreach Coordinator for Native students. I am a sophomore at Pomona College. My heritage is Jewish, through my mother, and German, through my father. At Pomona, I am planning to major in either history or international relations, and I am considering a career in law—human rights law, treaty rights law, or environmental law. I really enjoy cooking (and eating) all different kinds of food from around the world, being outside, making art, and cuddling with my cat! I am honored to be part of the Pipeline to College community, and I look forward to meeting all those whose paths cross with the Pipeline program.

On behalf of the Pipeline program, I would like to invite you all to our Pipeline to College “College Day for Native Students” event on Saturday, October 19th, at Pitzer College.  In addition to the College Day at Pitzer College, students are encouraged to attend a morning open house for Native Students at Western University of Health Sciences.

Lastly, Pomona students will lead a Mock Interview workshop, where students can practice their interview skills in small groups with peers and gain tips on how to have a successful interview.
