“My internship at the GPHS has been an awesome experience. Working as an intern here has allowed me to get hands-on work experience in the field of Marketing. I design all kinds of marketing materials, like pamphlets, websites, and fliers. I also get the chance to interact directly with local business leaders, help design fund raising projects for the Historical Society, and use many of the things that I’ve learned from my business and marketing courses in a real world environment. I would highly recommend the Greater Pittston Historical Society for anyone looking for an internship.”
