BBEDC works cooperatively with entities in its communities to place resident youth age 14-17 in internships around the Bristol Bay region. The basic fundamentals of good work ethic, application process and interview skills are the emphasis. At each pre-employment step, the youth applicant is coached by BBEDC staff on proper application and interview practices. Application periods will be announced on the radio and posted in communities as well as this website.
Organizations seeking to employ a youth intern should complete and submit a Youth Intern Employer Request.
Youth ages 14-17 who wish to apply for an advertised internship need to complete and submit a 2017 Youth Internship Application.
Adult In-Region Internships
BBEDC's adult in-region internships are designed to allow residents to work with partnering agencies and offer meaningful practical work experience related to interests and career goals. If you are interested in applying for an internship or have ideas for new internship opportunities, contact BBEDC Education, Employment & Training staff.
Non-Regional Partner Internships
Adult internships outside of the region are available with partnering companies associated with the seafood and marine industry in areas such as clerical, accounting, human resources, quality control, logistics, marketing, maintenance, boat building and information technology. All travel and most housing expenses are included. In addition, interns are paid an entry-level wage while performing the internship. BBEDC currently has six non-regional rotating internship opportunities available throughout the year. Internships can lead to full-time employment with CDQ harvest partners or other organizations in the Bristol Bay region.
To apply for an In-Region or Non-Regional Partner internship, complete and submit the 2017 Internship Application.
