Career Development

What distinguishes Gettysburg College is our commitment to help students build their career plan and their network.

Gettysburg College’s Center for Career Development works with students from their first year through their senior year and beyond, helping them with resume writing, interviewing skills, and articulating their campus experiences into desired career skills.

Through internships, externships, job shadowing, career immersion trips, and networking events, the Center for Career Development enables students to learn and gain insight about various career fields. These programs have taken students to Los Angeles, Boston, New York, Washington, and Philadelphia, looking at career fields like film and entertainment, advertising, the sciences, arts, public service, finance, and event planning.

Other unique programs offered by the Center for Career Development include the Siegfried Fellowship and the Entrepreneurial Fellowship, both of which combine an innovative curricula with opportunities for hands-on experience and professional skill-building.

All of these opportunities for practical career development, in addition to our graduates’ high rate of job placements just one year after graduation, have earned Gettysburg College the distinction of being one of only 16 liberal arts institutions featured in The Princeton Review’s newest guide, Colleges that Create Futures: 50 Schools that Launch Careers by Going Beyond the Classroom.
