The Value of an Internship; Watch Video

Four students discuss the impact of internships on their college education and life goals.

What is the value of an internship?

Students at Gettysburg College know!

Within the class of 2013, 67% of students completed an internship during their time at the College, and the Center for Career Development notes that these numbers have been increasing in recent years.

Four students who held internships this past summer discussed the impact of their experience on their education.

Angela Schimdt ’14, an Art Studio major, describes how her career goals always resided in the fashion industry. Through her internship with BCBG, she gained valuable practice as she applied what she learned in her studio art classes in a whole new way.

Anthony Castrovillo ’15, a Computer Science Major and History Minor, interned with NASA. He states that his experience with NASA laid the foundation for the rest of his experience at Gettysburg and beyond.

Learn more about Schmidt, Castrovillo, George Barton '14, and Sarah Delaney '16 and their internship experiences by watching the video above or by going to Youtube.
