Internship in Massachusetts question

I am inbetween positions, and was wondering if I could do an internship while I am collecting unemployment. Is that possible for people who have graduated?

Well, you've thrown a couple of things out there that are problematic.
First, if you are doing an internship (ie: work for experience, not pay), you probably aren't actively looking for employment (a requirement to draw unemployment in most states).
Second, if you are getting paid in this "internship" you aren't unemployed now, are you.
Third, if you have just graduated, you are looking for your first job, and unemployment is not available in that case.
Lastly, if you were fully employed and were let go such that you would qualify for unemployment, then taking to the state unemployment office is where I'd begin asking these questions.
