Last Wednesday, 14 of this year’s BBA Summer Jobs Program students arrived at 16 Beacon Street for Interview Day, an opportunity to meet with their employers ahead of their summer internships. The Summer Jobs Program, which is a partnership between the BBA, the City of Boston, Boston Public Schools, and the Boston Private Industry Council, places high school students from Boston Public Schools in paid legal internship positions in law firms, courts, legal services organizations, and government agencies. The seven-week program includes weekly enrichment seminars where student interns have the chance to develop professional skills and explore legal careers.
While the students who participated in Interview Day were guaranteed a position with the program regardless of the outcome of the interview, the afternoon represented a great opportunity to practice professional interview skills and learn more about the projects they will be working on over the summer. This is just one of many professional development opportunities that the students will engage in during the program. Stay tuned for more updates over the next few months!
