Internship and Employment Opportunities
Beginning in 2014 the Hartwick College CISC Department and Bassett Healthcare have joined forces to create internship and employment opportunities for our students.
We are happy to be able to offer our students the opportunity to increase their employability by gaining experience while learning here at Hartwick. Students live on campus and commute to Cooperstown on the free Oneonta Public Transit each day.
In January 2014, three students interned at Bassett Healthcare in Cooperstown, NY earning experience and academic credit. This will become a tiered program where students can return to Bassett in subsequent January terms gaining additional experience and responsibilities as their skills improve.
In summer 2014 Bassett has hired one of those interns as a summer employee and has offered three additional students paid summer internships.
One of our student/interns has been offered a position following graduation.
All of the students who particiated in January and those who will be working there this summer are thrilled to be working, earning and learning in a real-life setting. When asked about the program they said that they are excited to be putting the skills that we teach them to work each day.
