Nearly 80% of Lycoming students complete one or more internships locally, regionally and nationally. As a major retail, financial, health care, judicial, and transportation hub, Williamsport is an ideal city for students to combine their classroom knowledge with real-world experience from as early as their first year.
Students are also encouraged to take advantage of various workshops, including résumé and cover letter writing, interviewing techniques, LinkedIn, networking, dining etiquette, job search strategies, and grad school preparation. Students also can attend job fairs with recruiters from regional, national and international firms.
