College of the Canyons isn’t just a place of learning, but it’s also a place of opportunity  for students due to the Canyon Country campus hosting it’s annual Job and Intern Fair.

Many job and internship opportunities were available at the fair.  Students majoring in degrees for the medical field had the chance to apply for an internship at Simi Valley Hospital.  The Santa Clarita Worksource Center was also there for various things, including the chance for students to find work in order to supplement their income while they attend college.

One of the internships provided at the Job and Intern Fair was at a radio station for KHTS 1220 AM. It’s the only local radio station in the area, and the station’s website: is the number one website in the Santa Clarita Valley.

“If you’re into broadcasting , we do all the news for SCVTV on the broadcast that they do,” said KHTS employee Kyle Jellings.  “Definitely a great opportunity for somebody in college that’s trying to gain experience.”

If you’re a student looking for a tax credit for next semester or in the future, there was an opportunity for students to go online and see if they were eligible for the American Opportunity Act tax credit; as well as a chance for them to gain a commission based salary while spreading the news to other students.  The American Opportunity Act is a federal tax credit from the government to help college students in need.

“(The) tax credit could vary, said Vanessa Kamagate an employee from “But for the most part, the general amount is $500 for the tax credit.”
