Internships and Jobs
Earn academic credit for internships
Employers are increasingly interested in hiring graduates who have had relevant work experience during their college career. A meaningful internship gives students a competitive advantage in the job market.
We organize career fairs and work with our corporate partners to develop internship opportunities for students. We help students sharpen their interviewing skills, develop their resumes and cover letters, and find opportunities that fit their career plans. Our students complete internships with large and small organizations which function in the business, non-profit, and public sector, and operate in Central Pennsylvania and around the world. Companies that offer internship opportunities to our students include: Target Media, City Islanders, Penn State Hershey Medical Center, Members 1st, Hershey Foods, Martin’s Potato Chips, Hershey Entertainment and Resorts, Auntie Anne’s, City of Philadelphia, Highmark, Stauffer Glove and Safety, Deloitte Consulting, Clark Associates, TerraCycle, and AroundCampus Group.
Students can register for internships for 0-12 credits. Internships can be scheduled either during the academic year or during the summer.
Our graduates are employed at a wide range of companies around the country.
The Department of Business is an approved site for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program of the Internal Revenue Service. The VITA program offers free basic tax return preparation to low-to-moderate-income individuals who cannot prepare their own tax returns. The tax returns are prepared by accounting students and are reviewed by the Director of the Accounting Program for accuracy. This program allows students to earn college credits while honing their practical accounting skills in the area of tax preparation and also providing a service to the community.
