Oneonta - Cooperstown Link
Each spring, the Office of Career Services connects students with professionals in the local community through the Oneonta/Cooperstown Link program. Students spend an afternoon job shadowing at local businesses and organizations to gain exposure to their field of interest.
Job Shadow Host Organizations have included:
Bassett Medical Center, Oneonta City Schools, Catholic Charities, Lester R. Grummons Funeral Home, Hartwick College, Freedman's Journal, NBT, Otsego County Treasurer's Office, Bank of Cooperstown, Hospice, Southside Chiropractic, National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, Community Veterinary Center, Otesgo County Department of Social Services, Fly Creek Cider Mill, Clark's Sports Center, Oneonta Eye & Laser Center, Upstate History Alliance, Main View Gallery, CNY Radio Group, Wilber Bank and Opportunities for Otsego
Each year, a committee of Hartwick alumni and parents assists Career Services in locating and providing career shadows to students. The program is coordinated by Lara Sanford, Career Advisor. She can be reached at extension 4048 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
