Community and Industry Internship Program

Berry's Community & Industry (C&I) Internship Program is an established program creating a formal business relationship with off-campus employers in our local community. We view our off-campus partners as a formal extension of the Berry College LifeWorks program.

The C&I partnership provides upperclassmen with opportunities to work part-time jobs throughout the academic year (and summers) and offers them valuable experiences to advance their professional development. C&I jobs provide a real-world context that allows students to gain transferrable skills, expand their professional networks and explore career fields that interest them.

The C&I partnership also ensures employers a direct pipeline of young talent for their organization. By having students work in their organizations longer than a typical internship, employers gain greater knowledge of a student's abilities and earn a greater return on their investment from training and supervision. 

During the 2019-2020 academic year, Berry had more than 140 students participate in the C&I program. These students provided additional skills, varying points of view, energy and ideas to our partner companies and organizations.
