Help Current Students through the Externship Program
Our externship program is intentionally designed as an educational experience for students, rather than an employment experience. Students gain exposure to a real organization and learn about the company in a low-risk, short-term job shadow experience. You'll partner with us in coaching these students about professionalism and the business world. Job shadow experience can last from one-five days between January 2-17, 2014. Please contact Arline MacCormack, assistant director of Experiential Programs, to host an externship student!
