Internships & Jobs

"I interviewed and landed a marketing and design internship at Bayer Pharmaceuticals. At the interview, I shared so much about the skills and fun I had while interning with [the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy]. I want to thank you for the opportunities that have come my way just from participating in your research and heeding your advice about shaping my career and work ethic. I hope that all is going well with your research and thanks again!" – Nicole Lim, former Peninsula High School intern as a Junior at UC Berkeley.
