Find Resume Building Opportunities with LionLink Projects

LionLink Projects is a new initiative to connect Penn State alumni with students and recent graduates through project-based work. Using LionLink, alumni post projects that students or recent graduates can complete within 2-8 weeks. These projects provide opportunities to get real-world experience and build your résumés by applying the knowledge you have learned in the classroom. In turn, alumni who sponsor projects gain support for their company or organization from talented Penn State students and new graduates.
