Below is a recent press release from the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce regarding a new initiative around internships:
New England has long been a great place to go to college. Increasingly it could be a great place to get a meaningful workplace internship, while in school.
On Tuesday, January 8, more than a dozen organizations meeting at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston agreed to work together and expand their impact on internships and talent retention, going forward. The gathering was co-hosted by the Bank and the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce, and included employers, business organizations, employment specialists, and others.
“New England retains a lower share of students after graduation than other regions — in part because so many come from elsewhere to study here,” said Alicia Sasser Modestino, an economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, which hosted the gathering.
An internship can connect a student raised in New England, or here for school, with companies and institutions beyond the campus — the organizations that need brainpower and talent to propel their business.
“Internships are a ‘win-win,’ but they take a bit of effort,” said Ken Montgomery, First Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston. ”So we are pleased that a diverse group of organizations convened here at the Boston Fed, to continue making progress and to share ‘lessons learned’ with each other. We’ll be continuing the collaboration and warmly welcome others to join. Ultimately internships are good for all involved, and the region’s economy.”
“Talent is the fundamental building block of a competitive economy,” added Paul Guzzi, President and CEO of the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce. ”It has enabled New England to reinvigorate its economy several times in its history. Everyone realizes that internships can be the ‘glue’ that keeps talent in our region.”
“Collaboration like this can help the participants overcome hurdles and reach scale,” said Eric Rosengren, President and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston.
Students and employers can check out the “Chamber Intern Connect” website (using the links below), which lists internships available at Greater Boston Chamber member companies. Colleges and businesses can work with local chambers of commerce to explore internship opportunities or contact the Greater Boston Chamber.

The skilled trades worker shortage goes beyond manufacturing. Energy companies tell ManpowerGroup they need more workers in U.S. natural gas and oil fields.
Engineering has been a hot profession for many years, accenting the need for more students to pursue math, science and technology studies. Plus, employers needing engineers complain that they can't find candidates with industry-specific qualifications or certifications.
Certain industries, such as aerospace and electronics, have cut engineering jobs in recent years. However, jobs are growing in more traditional fields, such as civil engineering, and fledgling businesses are creating new avenues for engineers in the biomedical and environmental industries.
"The highest growth areas in engineering are projected to be: environmental, biomedical, industrial and civil engineering specialties," Zobrist says. He also expects electronics manufacturers to increase research and development spending, adding even more engineering opportunities.
If engineering sounds like the right career for you, you'll need a formal education. To land an entry-level position, you typically need a bachelor's degree in engineering, and some jobs require specialized training. To qualify for a management job, you'll likely need a master's degree.
The need for information technology, or IT, employees shot up on ManpowerGroup's worker-shortage survey, from sixth place in 2011 to third this year. The rapid growth of new technologies ranks as one of the main reasons why many IT managers are begging for workers.
"Anyone who has experience in cloud computing is in high demand," says Ann Zylstra, a partner with Kain Management Group in Walnut Creek, Calif. "It is the No. 1 area that employers are looking for."
Employers worry that the overall shortage of qualified IT professionals will affect their operations. And more than half of the U.S. employers surveyed say their pay scales are not in line with what IT workers want, which makes it hard to attract and retain staff.
Whenever the economy takes a downturn, companies tend to beef up their sales staffs to bring in more money, and that has been the trend in recent years.
Some sales areas, such as auto sales, often require at least a bachelor's degree.
Mills-Wilson-George Inc., a seller of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning equipment in Tennessee and Arkansas, can't always find salespeople with the right combination of experience."
