Hey, students - Are you still in the market for a fall semester internship? Well, don't panic. This could be just your ticket.
A new online resource called Intern Connect was recently launched by the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce (GBCC). The GBCC's more than 1,500 member businesses include some of the biggest and most prominent companies in the area, and Intern Connect offers access to the high-value, experience-building internship opportunities these firms offer.
The opportunities found on Intern Connect are designed to allow students to engage with the region's business community and develop valuable career skills. As everyone knows, it's a tight job market out there right now, and Intern Connect can provide you with a competitive edge and a way in to some of these local organizations, including the Boston Red Sox Foundation, Cradles to Crayons, Mullen, Northwestern Mutual, Project Bread, and many more.
To get started, just go to the GBCC Intern Connect website and set up your free account. You can also access Intern Connect through the Beatley Library's Internships Career Guide which also houses dozens of other internship sites and resources, including Simmons' own online job board, CareerLink.
So what are you waiting for? You'll be back in the classroom before you know it, so click here now to get going. And good luck!
