*This page lists the EOP Intake Internship. For the Intake Staff application, please refer to the next tab above.


Student Intake Internship:

The internship is designed to provide students an opportunity to enhance their leadership skills by representing the Educational Opportunity Program office (EOP) in a professional manner while maintaining that ever-important personal approach. It is through this position that students, faculty and staff form their first impression of EOP. As the first point of contact, interns play a vital role in the way others view the unit. By working closely with professionally trained counselors, Center for Educational Equity (CE3) programs, and Peer Academic Counselors (PAC), intake will take part of enhancing student’s academic performance and facilitating their adjustment to Berkeley.

Interns should possess personal qualities that abide EOP’s mission of providing non-traditional and culturally diverse students with programs and services that encourages them to excel towards graduation.  These qualities include professionalism, flexibility to perform in a fast-paced work environment, strong communication skills, and respect towards diverse populations.

In addition, interns have first hand access to professional Academic Counselors, high level of expertise in available resources, and develop a clear understanding of the need for quality and professional counseling services for low-income, first generation, underrepresented, or undocumented college students.

If selected, applicants should be available for a 30 minute interview either in-person or through Skype. For any questions regarding the application process, feel free to refer them to
