BHCC students have rich experience to offer employers. While many students come to BHCC straight out of high school, the average age of our students is 26 years old. Many of our students have extensive work and life experiences and are looking to transition into new fields. In addition to a range of previous work experience, our students bring their cultural strength to the workplace and can offer a diversity of thought and opinion to their jobs. When joined with the academic preparation students receive through their coursework at BHCC, our students contribute to their workplaces on many fronts.
Internships provide students with hands-on experience and insight into their chosen career paths. BHCC offers a number of Associate in Arts, Associate in Science, and certificate programs. Please visit Programs of Study to see all that BHCC has to offer.
At BHCC, students can earn academic credits by participating in internship courses while completing an internship. Students required to do an internship or decide to do one will take the 3-credit internship course, which will help enhance the academic experience for students. All internships will need to be approved before beginning their internship. Students engage in activities that improve their knowledge of the practical world of work and help them gain professional experience. When hosting an intern, the employer will have the support of BHCC’s Internships & Career Development department.
Post Jobs and Internships
Employers are encouraged to post positions ranging from internships to part-time to full-time jobs on Handshake, our online recruitment platform. Handshake is free and accessed by current BHCC students and alumni. Please note, students must complete 150 hours of internship work to be eligible for academic credit, and the internship must align with their degree program.
