The Career Development Center’s Employer Engagement Team welcomes employers to engage with our students through a variety of campus recruiting opportunities. Our goal is to foster as many meaningful connections between our students and the workplace as possible while ensuring a seamless recruiting experience. To get in touch with us about recruiting at Emerson College, please contact our Associate Director of Employer Engagement and Marketing, Blaine Butler.
Employers are encouraged to get involved with our students’ career readiness through a variety of programs and hands-on work experience opportunities, some of which are featured below.
Host an Emerson Intern
Internships allow students to apply knowledge they gain in the classroom to a professional setting. These opportunities allow students to apply and develop skills they’ve learned in the classroom as they build upon their experiential learning.
Students may complete internships independently or with recognition from Emerson College by receiving academic credit. If a student chooses to seek academic credit they will initiate this process and you will be contacted by our office’s Internship Administrator. If you would like to require that students receive credit, please state this clearly in the job description. Please note that for-credit internships must be approved by both the Career Development Center and the student’s academic department.
Employers must review the Department of Labor’s Fact Sheet #71's criteria for internships prior to posting a position.
Please note the following additional policies, some of which echo the DOL:
- Employers interested in hosting Emerson interns must provide either paid, for-credit, or paid and for-credit opportunities.
- Emerson students may not participate in a credit-bearing internship at a business owned or operated by a current Emerson faculty or staff member.
- A student may not use Emerson College as a host organization for a credit-bearing internship.
- Students may not receive retroactive credit for internships completed outside of the semester they are seeking credit.
For more information on internships and what is expected of Internship Host Sites, we ask you to visit our Internship Guidelines page.
