Hi Sarah,

I just wanted to make you aware of this potential internship opportunity for an ES student. If you or other faculty members know of any students who are still looking for summer internships, please send them my way. As you can see in the note below from the gentleman (who is a parent of a current Gettysburg student), this isn’t a definite yet, and they are also hoping to find a student who lives close enough to Red Bank, NJ. However, we do have some funding available to help students defray costs for housing, transportation, etc., so we can work with any student who expresses interest. I realize there isn’t any real information on the intern’s duties yet, and I will share that once I get more from them. The organization is an engineering consulting group, so I assume this might be dealing with environmental impact studies related to building projects.

Best,

Kathy

Dear Kathy:

I anticipate that our firm will be hiring an intern for the summer to work in our ecological group in the Red Bank , NJ corporate office. A decision will be made in approximately a month as the weather gets better and the group understands its workload better. The position would be paid.

I wanted to know if any of the Gettysburg students who are majoring in environmental studies and are looking for work this summer in their field live within an hour of the Red Bank office. If there are no students that live within that radius around the office, it would probably not be feasible for them to seek the position unless they had family or friends that live close to the office that they could stay with.

Please let me know if there are students that live in close proximity that would be interested. Thanks.

Dear Colleagues,

The Center for Career Development Summer 2015 Externship Program is currently open for student applications! An email was sent to all students yesterday, but we welcome you to share the information below with any students, groups or colleagues to help spread the word about this summer’s externship offerings. As these experiences are typically only for a week, they are a great ‘add-on’ for juniors to a summer internship and a way for a first-year or sophomore to gain practical career experience in addition to a summer job. Applicants must be currently enrolled students at the time of the externship and be in good standing with the College.

There is a two part application – part 1 is an online application with open-ended questions, and part 2 is submission of a resume to CCDexternships. Both parts of the application are due Friday, March 6th by 11:59p.m. I have included more information about the program and application process/deadlines below.
