    I have been working at Claremont McKenna as an intern for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are plenty of jobs available on campus if you're working off of the work study fund. Make sure that you approach departments early in the year so that their quota doesn't fill up.

    Cons

    Work can be monotonous. Often times you'll be asked to do work that is not necessarily as challenging as you'd like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give students projects that can showcase and challenge their abilities.

    Pros

    Claremont is a beautiful campus and a great college (situated next to the other four Claremont Colleges). The small student body size makes for a great but still well-connected community.

    Cons

    People sometimes get stuck in the "Claremont Bubble" and get a little out of touch with reality. Otherwise, the work experience is pleasant and the compensation is appropriate for student employment.
