Mass Stay Here Internship Site
Massachusetts Office of Business Development
On April 26, the state launched its internship initiative:
All companies with Massachusetts-based internships are invited to post and promote their internship opportunities on the site for free. This will create a one-stop shop for students searching for statewide internship opportunities, while still allowing companies to maintain their own application process and individual posting mechanisms.
Massachusetts college students will be able to search and find Massachusetts-based internships, helping them build professional networks with local companies. Currently, over 100 internships exist on the site, and new companies, industry groups, and economic development-focused organizations are joining the collaboration on an ongoing basis.
All Massachusetts colleges and universities will be made aware of this great new resource so they can share it with their students. Each University of Massachusetts undergraduate campus has committed to utilizing these resources for their students.

Massachusetts: It's All Here in conjunction with the Massachusetts Internship Collaborative and Intern Bridge has created a free how to e-book to assist small businesses who may be creating internships for the first time.
