Meet Scott Cowlin
“It made our lives easier, and it is a great opportunity for the intern as well as Pittsfield Cooperative Bank.”
This past summer, Pittsfield Cooperative Bank partnered with Lever’s Berkshire Interns program for the first time.
“It made our lives easier, and it is a great opportunity for the intern as well as Pittsfield Cooperative Bank,” said Vice President and Branch Manager Scott Cowlin, who oversees the intern program.
Before partnering with BI, Cowlin said the bank wasn’t doing much active outreach—they would always hire summer interns, but those interns usually came from a more limited network. BI markets internships to 150 colleges, and employers usually get at least 14 resumes per listing to look through—a much bigger talent pool.
“BI guided us through it,” he said. “They take care of the process and we get summer help, which offers more efficiency with our staff.”
