Working with the Career Center, employers can find many ways to connect with students seeking employment and internship opportunities:

  • Internship and Career Fairs - By taking part in an internship or career fair, companies can increase their visibility and meet with a broad range of qualified students.
  • Employer Recruiter Series - Visit campus and share information about their organization, available opportunities, company culture and hiring timelines. The Career Center can provide assistance with advertising and promote the visit to students.
  • On-Campus Interviewing - Conduct one-on-one or group interviews with prospective candidates. The Career Center will assist you in scheduling and reserving space to meet your recruiting needs.
  • Employer Panels - Take part on an employee panel to offer insight into your industry and share information about your organization, as well as your own professional journey. Employer panels are often paired with informal networking before or after the event.
  • Career Center Course Volunteer - Volunteer to review resumes, facilitate mock interviews or present in class. Connect with first-year students and increase awareness about your organization early in our students' careers.

Policies/Guidelines

Internships will generally last the duration of one term, or approximately 12-14 weeks. Some majors require students to complete a two-semester internship. On average, interns will work approximately 12-20 hours per week, depending on the requirements for their major. Students will work in collaboration with their faculty supervisor and the Career Center to determine which opportunities are the best fit for their major requirements and career aspirations.

  • The student's career interests and abilities match your organization's needs, as well as the mission and values of the College.
  • The internship location is not in a private residence and the site is a reasonable commuting distance from the Fenway neighborhood of Boston.
  • The organization's needs and student's required departmental hours are compatible.
  • The student is assigned a direct supervisor who meets regularly with the student.
  • There is orientation and training for the new intern.
  • The onsite supervisor will be a professional role model and will actively work to develop the student as a young professional.
  • There are opportunities for the intern to participate in organizational activities beyond administrative work, such as meetings, special events, etc.

The following six criteria must be applied when making this determination:

  • The internship, even though it includes actual operation of the facilities of the employer, is similar to training which would be given in an educational environment;
  • The internship experience is for the benefit of the intern;
  • The intern does not displace regular employees, but works under close supervision of existing staff;
  • The employer that provides the training derives no immediate advantage from the activities of the intern; and on occasion its operations may actually be impeded;
  • The intern is not necessarily entitled to a job at the conclusion of the internship; and
  • The employer and the intern understand that the intern is not entitled to wages for the time spent in the internship.
