  • Internships

    The Career Development Center works with Employer Partners, faculty, and staff to help identify and support students seeking internship opportunities. Before an internship is posted or promoted to Berkshire Community College students and eligible alumi, the position must adhere to Massachusetts state law and guidelines for Training and Vocational Programs and Volunteer Work as outlined by the State of Massachusetts Department of Labor Standards.

    While the preference is that our students receive monetary compensation for their work, we understand that certain career fields offer formal and informal experiential compensation and other benefits as industry standard practice. Unpaid internship opportunities must meet the criteria provided by the State of Massachusetts Department of Labor Standards and will be vetted by Career Development Center staff.
