Students - Home

The Office of Business Engagement & Strategic Partnerships (BE&SP) connects LBUSD students to local businesses and organizations who provide a variety of real-world career experiences including high school internships, work site tours, industry chats, mock interviews, guest speakers, and other special career events. 

Our goal is to provide experiences that complement what you learn in class so you are empowered and prepared for your path to college, career and beyond. 

What Students are Saying...

-- “My internship provided me with real world experience in the finance field. I was able to use what I had learned in the class-room and apply it to the tasks I was given while also learning new skills related to my career focus. I also learned how to navigate the work environment and collaborate with colleagues in order to solve problems. [This] helped make me a more experienced candidate for future employers.” 

-- “After my mock interview, I feel more confident in approaching my next college or pro-fessional interview. I know what is expected of me, and I know what to work on for my next interview.” 

-- “The guest speaker opened my eyes in a career I haven't put much though into. Being in the criminal justice program at school, it's good to see that the Spanish [speaking] culture has importance in court. I was also very appreciative that the guest speaker explained steps to get to become a court interpreter.“
