Gettysburg College alumni, parents, and friends have always been generous, offering their time and connections to move other Gettysburgians along in their careers. In today's extremely challenging job market, your support is not only necessary for Gettysburg students to compete, but the right thing to do- and an important way for you to make a difference in their lives.
In 2010 Gettysburg's Center for Career Development began an intensive five-year campaign to create 1,832 new career-related opportunities for students by 2015. Thanks to supportive alumni, parents, and friends the College has exceeded that goal and has added 3,000 new and meaningful opportunities for students.
Now, the College embarks on a new challenge: add 2,000 more career-related opportunities by 2015.
Can you host a networking dinner? Provide a summer internship? Allow a student to shadow you or a coworker? Let students talk to you by phone about your own career? Whether you can give an hour or a summer's worth of time, there are students who would like to tap your expertise and experience.
We look forward to working with you in this initiative and appreciate your time and dedication to supporting the career endeavors of the next generation of Gettysburg graduates.
