Want to meet with a staff member?

To make an appointment please login to Handshake with your myBerea username and password, call 859-985-3656, or visit us in Stephenson Hall, Room 308. New appointment slots are added on a regular basis.

If this is your first time doing an internship, you need to make sure you’re up-to-date on new internship processes and guidelines, or if you’ve done an internship before and you’d just like a refresher, we recommend registering for our 3 information sessions (offered throughout the Fall and Spring terms) before making an individual appointment (sessions are recommended for all students but required only if this is your first internship). Common questions are answered in these sessions, and we also share helpful tips, information, and resources to get you started.

Information Sessions

If you still need an individual appointment after attending the information sessions, we offer the following options:

Drop-in Hours

On Mondays and Wednesdays from 3-5pm, you can drop in Stephenson Hall 308 without an appointment and find out what you need to know!
