“As an Information Technology major, I secured an internship at J. Walter Thompson, a worldwide marketing firm in New York City, and my exposure there led to a job offer in my field. My education at Keystone provided the real-world skills and hands-on experiences I needed to start my career. Every student should seek a hands-on learning experience before they finish their degree, and Keystone will help make that happen.”
