Internship & Career Pathways Program

Welcome to the new home for the Say Yes Buffalo Internship & Career Pathways Program!

You’re in the right place to start your career!

Please click on an internship opportunity below to read the full job description, paying careful attention to required qualifications, application instructions, and deadlines. Say Yes will notify you once your application has been submitted to the employer. At that point, the employer will decide if they want to proceed with your application and contact you regarding next steps. Remember, internships are not guaranteed. You must be interviewed and hired, just like with any job application process.   

It is in your best interest to make an appointment with career services on your campus to have them review your resume and cover letter prior to submitting them to Say Yes. While Say Yes will still review your application, the editing process will not be as detailed as it has been in previous years. In order to ensure your best chance of being offered an interview, using your career center is your best option. If you have any questions, please contact [email protected]. 

Message to Our Employer Partners

As of September 2021, our Internship & Career Pathways Program will be scaling down services and programming that has been offered in the past. This includes various events and workshops where our generous employer partners have graciously volunteered.  

Thanks to incredible collaborations with WNY employers, over two hundred Say Yes Buffalo Scholars have completed internships through this program, and we thank you all for your partnership. Moving forward, we remain committed to connecting our students with high-quality paid internships with local employers who reserve one or more positions exclusively for Say Yes and are able to self-fund the position(s). The application and interview process will remain the same. 

If you have any questions, or if you are a new employer and would like to discuss becoming a partner, please contact Stephanie Peete at [email protected].
