The Career Center's Internship Expo is an exclusive opportunity for students to network with over 20 employers from across the arts and entertainment industries. Representatives will be on campus to recruit for 2019 spring and summer internships.
The expo is open to all students, but only those who check in and have a nametag will be admitted into the event spaces. Large instruments and bags are not permitted in the event spaces. There will be no space to store these items; please plan accordingly.
You can register on the day of the expo, but pre-registration is encouraged. Pre-registration is now open.
Participating companies and virtual meetups:

- Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston

Virtual meetups are for employers who cannot make it to campus on the day of the expo, so the Career Center arranges for them to speak with students virtually. Limited spots are available for students to speak with these employer representatives about their company and internships. Students must RSVP on the Berklee Career Manager under Career Events for specific virtual meetups. All virtual meetups will take place in designated rooms at 921 Boylston Street.
