Williamsport Internship Summer Experience (WISE) Program
All returning Lycoming College students will be invited to apply for the Williamsport Internship Summer Experience (WISE). Selected students will be matched with partners to complete a 10-week internship experience consisting of 35-40 working hours/week.
To be considered for WISE, a student will complete an application and email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
- Personal statement
- Letters of recommendation* (3)
- Unofficial transcript (demonstrating appropriate course work and good academic standing)
*If preferred, faculty/staff, employers, etc. can send their letters of recommendation directly to MaryJo Campana, director of career services, via email email@example.com or via campus mail (Box 154).
Application Deadline: February 11th, 2014
Candidates for WISE will be selected based on the quality of their application package and an interview with the WISE committee. Final placement will be determined by an interview and approval by the internship partner. Selected WISE students will be required to participate in a 5-week internship preparation program.
The College, student and internship partner will work together to create specific learning objectives for the student. During the duration of the internship, students will meet weekly with a member of the WISE Committee to reflect on their personal experience. The weekly meetings will assist the interns in examining their own values, interests, and leadership style by posing problems, setting boundaries, and facilitating the learning process as it relates to their internship experience.
WISE, at its most fundamental basis, will provide students entering their sophomore, junior or senior year at the College with a resume building opportunity, workforce experience in a field of interest, assistance in choosing/confirming a major and time management skills between their work and personal life.
