Internship Guide

Internships allow students to apply the knowledge they gain in the classroom to a professional setting. Use the steps below to get started.

The spring 2021 internship deadline is Friday, February 5, 2021.

  

1. Complete the Internship Pathway in the Berklee Career Manager.

The pathway covers a range of topics that include internship requirements/eligibility, internship course options, important considerations for non-U.S. students, and internship search resources. Upon completing this pathway, students will gain access to apply for internships.
 

To complete the pathway, log in to the Berklee Career Manager and navigate to the Resources menu on the left-hand side, and then choose Pathways. Start the Internship Pathway Workflow as outlined in our Internship Pathway Guide.

  

2. Submit your internship in the Berklee Career Manager for approval.

The final step of the Internship Pathway Workflow is to enter your internship for approval using our guide. If you are seeking credit for the internship, be sure to enter the Internship Registration Form.

If you are not taking the internship for credit, enter your internship as a Career Outcome using our guide.

Apply for a fellowshipFunding of up to $5,000 can be used to help with cost-of-living expenses while interning.

  

3. The Career Center processes your internship.

Within five business days, the Career Center will process your internship registration forms. The Career Center will review your internship details and add the internship course to your upcoming semester schedule. You will be contacted if additional information is needed. 

You will be added to an OL internship course with your assigned Career Center internship advisor, where you will complete all assignments. Sample assignments can be found on your internship course.
