NORTH ADAMS, MASS. —Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts (MCLA) will host its inaugural Career and Internships Fair on Friday, Oct. 19, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  This event, which is open to all MCLA students and alumni, as well as to Berkshire Community College (BCC) students, will take place in the Amsler Campus Center’s Venable Gym on the MCLA campus.

The objective of this event is to connect local students and alumni who seek full time employment or internships to employers who are looking to fill positions within their organizations – in the area, the region, and the nation.

According to Anthony Napolitano, Jr., internship coordinator at the College’s Center for Student Success and Engagement (CSSE), MCLA’s Fall Career and Internships Fair is a tremendous opportunity for recruiters and employers to connect with prospective employees and/or future interns, while at the same time promoting their places of business.  

“Professionals in attendance will be able to meet MCLA students, collect their resumes and conduct on-site interviews – all in one day and in the same location. This will prove especially helpful to employers who have positions that need to be filled in a timely manner,” Napolitano said.

MCLA welcomes professional organizations from all sectors to participate in this event.   Selected employers who plan take part in the Fair include the Brien Center, Berkshire Arts and Technology Charter School (BART), and Scribe America.

Students and alumni will have the opportunity to network with employers from 10 a.m. to noon. In addition, employers may elect to conduct on-campus interviews with students and/or alumni, from 12:30 to 2 p.m.

The MCLA Office of Career Development will welcome employer registration for this event through Wednesday, Oct. 10.  For more information and to register, please contact Tony Napolitano at (413) 662-5332, or

Some professional attire for students may be provided by Goodwill, which is offering the clothing at no charge through its “Suit Yourself” program.
