Monterey Bay Internships Provide Students and Employers a Place to Connect

Marina, CA – With over 2,500 users to date, Monterey Bay Internships (MBI) is a free and easy-to-use online portal for employers to post internship opportunities with direct access to motivated young adults looking to gain work experience as they enter the workforce. Focusing on the Monterey Bay Region, mbinterns.org strives to provide students throughout Santa Cruz County, Monterey County, and San Benito County with access to hundreds of internship opportunities, updated regularly by employers themselves.

The challenge to gain work experience as students transition from college courses to a career path can be daunting, and this portal is a bridge for that trajectory. Sponsored by Monterey Bay Economic Partnership (MBEP), Cabrillo College, University of California Santa Cruz, California State University Monterey Bay, Santa Cruz County Business Council, Community Foundation for Monterey County, Community Foundation Santa Cruz County, and Hartnell College, MBI’s goal is connect students with local employers. Having used mbinterns.org, San Jose State University senior Eric Hernandez now works as a paid intern for Your Future is Our Business, a local non-profit. “I really have the chance to practice all the skills I’ve learned in school,” says Hernandez. “I have gained exposure to what and how a non-profit works, and continue to have experiences that I otherwise would not have had — all thanks to MBI connecting me to this great organization. It’s my favorite internship yet!”

This is just one of many success stories that have come from employers and students using MBI. Employers continue to use MBI as a valuable resource in the internship recruitment process. “MBI is the number one source I go to in order to find and engage with potential interns,” says Fred Cohen of Management Analytics. “Quick, efficient effective, and to the point.” For more information, visit mbinterns.org.
