Show a Babson Student the Ropes
Will you host a Babson undergraduate student as a job shadow? Our Externship Program is intentionally designed as an educational experience for students, rather than an employment experience. This is a unique opportunity for students to learn about the business world in a low-risk, short-term job shadow experience, and we invite our Externship hosts (YOU!) to partner with us in coaching these students in areas such as professionalism and the world of business. Job shadow experiences can last from one to five days between January 5-16, 2015. Please contact Scott Hendrickson if you want to host an Externship student!
