USGIF Extern Shares GEOINT 2016 Experience

Posted on September 29, 2016 with 0 comments

Taylor Beck, an undergraduate student studying political science at Gettysburg College, recently shared her USGIF externship experience in a News@Gettysburg article.

Beck attended USGIF’s four-day GEOINT 2016 Symposium in May and worked as a personal assistant to USGIF CEO Keith Masback, a Gettysburg College alumni. Through the externship, Beck had the opportunity to learn more about the Intelligence Community (IC) and career possibilities in the field. She also got the chance to meet IC leaders like Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency Director Robert Cardillo, in addition to CNN’s National Security Correspondent Jim Sciutto and countless other defense and intelligence leaders.

“I went into that symposium not knowing much about the intelligence field and left realizing that I wanted to go into national security law. It really showed me how important this field is and how it is shaping U.S. national security in the future,” Beck said in the article.
