Internships and Jobs
Potential employers are increasingly interested in hiring graduates who have had meaningful "hands-on" business experience during their college career. Elizabethtown College works closely with businesses, accounting firms and Fortune 500 companies located in central Pennsylvania and throughout the East Coast to place students into internships during their junior and senior years.
Students are strongly encouraged to participate in internships under the guidance of a faculty member. You can earn academic credit for internships, and they can be scheduled either during the academic year or during the summer. A successful internship can give you a competitive advantage during the interview process and can lead to an offer of employment.
The Department is also an approved site for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program of the Internal Revenue Service. Through this program, junior and senior accounting and business majors assist low-income and elderly taxpayers in preparing their returns.
