Elmira College is now partnering with the Watkins Glen Area Chamber of Commerce on a new, specialized Intern Program for area college students.

The Intern Program will provide small businesses with skilled workers who can assist with tasks and projects, while also offering area students the opportunity to experience the working world. Chamber member businesses interested in having an intern will work with the Watkins Glen Chamber of Commerce and the Elmira College Office of Career Services to identify, interview and place an appropriate student for the position available.

Currently, every student at Elmira College completes a 240-hour internship.  The partnership with the Watkins Glen Chamber of Commerce provides an even greater pool of opportunities for students to complete those hours within the Southern Tier region.
