Jobs and Internships

The Career Options Resource Center can help with every stage of your job or internship search, including finding direction, researching opportunities, and applying for positions.


You can do an internship in virtually any field, and it can be part-time, full-time, paid, or unpaid. Hampshire students do internships during the fall and spring semesters, as well as during winter and summer break. With approval from faculty, you may use an internship to fulfill your Community Engaged Learning (CEL-2) requirement.
