Internship Opportunities

 

The Student Services Department and the Counseling Program are excited to invite masters-level school counseling students/interns to complete a practicum and/or an internship in Beaumont Unified School District (BUSD).

 

Our School Counseling Internship Program has been developed to assist BUSD school counselors in partnering with an intern in order to positively impact student achievement while exposing future counseling professionals to evidence-based academic, social/emotional, and college and career programming within BUSD.

 

Prospective interns are encouraged to complete an interest form during the application window as soon as possible since placements are limited and registration will be closed once filled. Once the interest form is complete, the BUSD Counseling Coordinator will review the submission.

Before completing the interest form, please review the information below, so you can successfully complete the eligibility process. There are three separate steps that must be completed in order to receive an internship approval email. Completion of all of these steps helps ensure that Beaumont Unified schools have qualified school counselor interns working with students.

 

BUSD Counseling Intership Interest Form

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Submitting an Interest Form does not guarantee placement at a school site.  If you have questions, please contact the Counseling Coordinator at [email protected].

 

Completing an interest form does not guarantee an internship placement. Potential practicum and internship students must complete the site clearance process through Human Resources and an eligible site supervisor must be secured prior to any formal offers for placement.  For additional information, please see the document titled, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).


Step 1: Complete the Beaumont Unified Counseling Internship Interest Form


  • Prospective interns must complete the online Beaumont Unified Counseling Internship Interest Form, which requires general information.
  • Prospective interns are encouraged to complete the Interest Form as early as possible. Please submit the Interest Form at least 4 weeks before the anticipated start date.

After BUSD reviews the completed application components from Step 1, prospective interns will be sent the Site Clearance Form in an email notifying them of potential placement and site supervisor once final clearances are completed.  Prospective interns must complete the Site Clearance Form and submit it in a timely manner.
