Always check your email, you never know - it may lead to a new job. Sophomore Stephanie Hallinan began her internship with GIS because of an email of opportunities in the lab sent over the summer.
“I had never heard of GIS before, but after going through the site it seemed like a really interesting and challenging place to work that would offer more than simply manning a desk for several hours. I wanted something that would be new and challenging, but would offer me skills I could use later on, and would hopefully open some doors when looking for employment after college. I realize GIS offers all of this and more.”

“A lot of my friends in college were upperclassmen and they had all taken GIS classes and were interning with the GIS lab. I got to see all the cool projects they were working on and they encouraged me to sign up for GIS in the fall semester of my junior year. I continued as an intern throughout junior year, that summer, and my senior year.” said Bulkilvish.

An anthropology major from Frederick, Md., Perkins will graduate with diploma and job offer in hand. As a leading intern in the lab since freshman year, she completed a summer internship with technology consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton and returned to campus with assurances that a full-time position would await her following graduation in May. Stew Bruce’s connection to Booz Allen Hamilton principal Susan Kalweit, who serves with him on the U.S. Geospatial Intelligence Foundation Academic Advisory Board, helped Perkins land the internship.
