Internship

Your knowledge in practice

Internships are key for career preparation. Student-athlete Justus Leimbach interned in the marketing department at Lancaster Archery Supply.

“To see how the inside of a (marketing) department works is something that you can’t teach in a classroom setting. Everyone thinks that you won’t ever need what you learn in classrooms, and I used to be that way myself, but I can now say that is a completely false statement. It is amazing to see that these companies use all of the same terms and processes that we learned in class.”
