Internship experiences give students the skills, confidence and connections they need to pursue a successful career and life. That is why the BEC has worked with the leading employers in Oregon for decades to give thousands of high school and college students opportunities that are hard to find anywhere else.

The BEC internship experience is valuable for both students and employers. Students get the opportunity to apply what they have learned in the classroom and get the real-world experience they need for success. Employers get to enrich their workplace by giving employees mentoring opportunities and contributing to process of developing future workers.
