Provide Career Guidance to Students and Young Alumni

Gettysburg's students and young alumni benefit immeasurably from the wisdom and experience of alumni, parents, and friends who have become successful professionals.

Here's how you can help Gettysburg's students and young alumni as they begin their professional lives:

Host a site visit, one-day job shadow, or one-week externship at your workplace. Even better, supervise a summer or semester-long internship.

Join discussions on the Gettysburg College Professional Network on LinkedIn, participate as a panelist on a Career Immersion Trip, and attend a young alumni career networking event.

Recruit Gettysburg College students and alumni by advertising jobs and internships at the Gettysburg Center for Career Development or on the Gettysburg College Professional Network on LinkedIn.
