Summer 2015 Externship Program
This is the last week we are accepting application packets for the Summer 2015 Externship Program.  The deadline for the online application and resume is Fri., March 6, by 11:59 pm.  Students will be notified in late March (via email) about their Externship Host.

An Externship is a unique, intensive job shadowing opportunity that allows Gettysburg students to gain an insider’s view into a career field, observe on-the-job activities, and participate in hands-on learning experiences in the workplace.  This experience typically lasts one week during the summer (one week during May 11 - August 21). Most externships are sponsored by Gettysburg alumni, parents, and friends of the College - a great networking opportunity!

2015 Externships are available in the following Career Fields:  Business; Communications/Advertising/Marketing; Education and Higher Education; Event Planning; Healthcare and Human Services; Law and Government; Library Services; Ministry; Non-Profit and Fundraising; Research and Environmental; Veterinary Medicine.

Applications and a full listing of the 67 Externships by Career Field are available at http://www.gettysburg.edu/career/
