Are you looking for employees?

INTECH promotes the AAA candidate: Attitude, Aptitude and Attendance! We pre-screen students to ensure they show up on time, ask questions, have a strong work ethic, and know the fundamentals of safety and technical skills related to their field of study.

Meet the Students:
  • Student Recruitment Events – The InTech Center hosts sessions for employers to meet and engage with the graduating trainees. Employers are invited to participate in one-on-one sessions with the trainees, prior to graduation. Employers have an opportunity to share a company overview, job-related opportunities, recruit and hire trainees directly, as a Registered Apprentice, or Paid Intern.
  • Guest Speaker – Visit our current training programs and speak to students about your company and open job opportunities.
  • Industry Interview – Participate in interviews with trainees to share your entry-level job opportunities and hear trainees discuss the skills attained during hands-on and classroom training that make them a good fit for the success of your operation and company.
  • Site Tour – Invite trainees into your facilities, so they can get a firsthand look at your operation, equipment, and see workers perform daily tasks related to their InTech Center program training.

Paid Internship Program

InTech Center provides paid internships for trainees to work at manufacturing, distribution, logistics, and related industry sectors.

  • Trainees have completed Industrial Electrical, Industrial Mechanical, or Welding Pathways.
  • Interns work under the guidance of a supervisor to observe and then practice skills related to their training program.
  • Interns are NOT full-time employees of the organization and are paid by the Foundation for California Community Colleges (aka, “FOUNDATION”) the Employer of Record.
  • Payroll is covered at the entry-level hourly wage of the worksite for 40 hours per week up to 240 total hours – $5,806 VALUE!.
  • Workers’ compensation is 100% covered through this program (for paid internship hours), by the Employer of Record.
  • For employers, this is a no-pressure, low-risk platform to have students work up to 240-hours in what is, essentially, a working interview. Allow trainees to experience the rigors of the job first-hand, ideally, positioning them for full-time employment.


Requirements of companies:

  • Complete a work site agreement.
  • Must have open positions available – InTech places interns with companies that want to fill existing open positions. This is to ensure maximum success between interns and their work site.
  • Supervisors must complete an 8-hour mentorship training. Supervisors who complete this training will be adequately prepared to mentor an intern.
  • The paid internship program offers two payroll and worker’s compensation payment options:
    1) Employers with less than 100 employees at a worksite for 6 weeks (240 hours) Paid Internship. The FOUNDATION (Employer of Record) pays 100% payroll at the entry-level hourly wage and workers compensation for 40 hours (8 hours/day for 5 days work week).
    2) Employers with one or more employees at a worksite for 10 weeks (240 hours) Paid Internship. The FOUNDATION (Employer of Record) pays for 100% payroll at the entry-level hourly wage and worker’s compensation for 24 hours (3 days/week, 8 hours/day), and the Employer Work Site pays 100% payroll at the entry-level hourly wage and worker’s compensation for 16 hours (2 days/week, 8 hours per day). Employer Work Site pays 100% for overtime wages and worker’s compensation during overtime.
  • Pending successful completion, the Employer Work Site is willing to hire the intern as a full-time employee for the paid internship hourly wage (based on entry-level hourly wage) or above.

InTech Center Industrial Electrical/Mechanical Pre-Apprenticeship trainees were invited to a luncheon and tour of Walmart Automation Consolidation Center #6561 in Colton. Students had an opportunity to learn about the General Maintenance Associate (GMA) position, tour the warehouse floor, and see up-close the automated equipment that the GMA’s maintain, troubleshoot, and repair.
