Make an Appointment with Internships or Career Development

Important:

Internships & Career Development staff are here to help you! We’re currently working remotely until further notice, but we’re taking appointments virtually. We can answer questions by phone, Zoom/Skype, or email! Please make all appointments via Handshake (instructions below) or call 859.985.3656.

Each program within the Office of Internships and Career Development offers different services to students, so the type of help you’ll need will determine what kind of appointment to request.

Want to meet with a staff member?

To make a virtual appointment, please login to Handshake with your myBerea username and password, or call 859-985-3656 (we are only offering virtual or phone appointments at this time). New appointment slots are added on a regular basis.

If this is your first time doing an internship, or if you want to make sure you’re up-to-date on new internship processes and guidelines, we recommend registering for our 3 information sessions before making an individual appointment (sessions are recommended for all students but required only if this is your first internship). Common questions are answered, and we also share helpful tips, information, and resources to help you throughout your internship search.

Information Sessions

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

Appointments in Handshake

Schedule virtual appointments at least 24-hours in advance in Handshake or call 859.985.3656 for same-day appointments (limited availability).
