Danielle Harvey, career counselor and employee relations lead of the Career Development Center at Syracuse University said many students are doing internships in the Syracuse area, as well as on-campus.

“We do have local news broadcast organizations like News Channel 9, we’ve had a lot of students work there, CNY Central, those are our local news affiliates. And then we also have students who work on-campus. They work for the Daily Orange or for our local TV station,” Harvey said.
