Interns will learn about and contribute to various aspects of publishing an online website, including lead generation, research, interviewing, story-writing, editing, audio and video production, social media marketing, and website infrastructure.

Internships can be volunteer, for course credit, or paid depending on the student’s interest and skills.

The positions are virtual and the internships are tailored to fit individual interests and schedules.

For more information and to apply please contact Charles Stangor, Publisher, at cstangor@gettysburgconnection.org

Here are testimonials from some of our prior interns:

“I have learned so much about my own skills and weaknesses when it comes to writing and I could not have done it without your help! So, thank you so much for taking time to mentor us and taking time to teach us everything for this internship. I hope that this internship continues to be available to the Gettysburg student body for years to come. I will continue to tell my peers about it and how important it was for my own college experience.” Sofia Botero, Fall 2020

“I have learned so much about researching, interviewing, writing, marketing, and website management. It was a pleasure to work with you and my fellow interns. I have learned so much from their work and your guidance. I am excited to take the skills I have gained from this experience and use them in future pursuits! Thank you for all your assistance and advice, as well as giving me the opportunity to learn more about Adams County and the process of local journalism.” Cameron D’Amica, Fall 2020

“Thank you so much for everything this semester. It’s been a really great experience being able to help and work for the Connection. I’m really proud of all the work that we’ve completed throughout the whole year. I learned so much about journalism and myself as a writer. I also learned so much about the Gettysburg Community that I had never known before. Having the opportunity to interview people of my choice in the area was something that I really loved being able to do. Thank you for such a great experience.” Katie Graham, Fall 2020

“This Internship has been such a nice experience for me.  I’ve learned from working with the survey data and how to transform those data into useful data viz. I’ve started from not knowing much about R and how useful it is when working with statistical/economics data to becoming immediately proficient. All of the lessons I’ve learned here at the can and will be used in all of my future challenges, of which I’m not sure yet, but and I’m so blessed to have experienced this internship over the summer.” Tien Tong, Summer 2021

“My summer interning at the Gettysburg Connection offered a beneficial and informative first look into the career of journalism that has influenced my perception of the industry, as well as what the job can entail. My primary responsibility was publishing the press releases from the local organizations and businesses of Adams County, which allowed me to remain up to date with Gettysburg and its surroundings towns while being home for the summer. Furthermore, one of my stories included a movie review of the film No Sudden Move. This was my first professional review and it was a form of writing that I felt confident working in and could see myself continuing that if given the opportunity.” Shane Carley, Summer 2021

“This internship provided me with an opportunity to expand upon invaluable skills like research, writing, and communication. I enjoyed the independent working environment that allowed me to explore topics I was interested in. I also liked managing the social media pages, especially give that social media is becoming increasingly essential to the success of many businesses and organizations. I am looking forward to continuing my work with Gettysburg Connection in the future.” Alli Dayton, Summer, 2021
