Student Employment

Berklee's student employment program can help you get started on a path to a successful career.

We aim to provide students with:

  • Opportunities to get career-related experience. Students work as studio assistants, music tutors, stage crew, and accompanists.
  • Networking opportunities. Through your student employment position, you will get to meet students, faculty, and staff from all across the college.
  • Preparation for internships. Working on campus can help you obtain the skills you need to get a top-notch internship placement.
  • Spending money. You'll be paid biweekly for on-campus work.

Quick Facts:

  • You can work during your first semester at Berklee.
  • International students can work at Berklee but will need to obtain a U.S. social security card. Our office will you assist you in the process.
  • Students can work up to 15 hours per week when classes are in session at an average wage of approximately $11 per hour.
  • You will compete with other students for job openings through our office.

The Student Employment team hosts a general meeting during new student orientation. We begin taking appointments with new students during the first week of classes. To learn more, please visit the Student Employment website.
