The Extern Program enables students to explore different career options by allowing a firsthand glimpse into a field of interest.
By shadowing professionals in their workplace, students can begin to explore their interests and learn about various opportunities. Advice and guidance from alumnae/i in this shadowing experience may help students identify potential career options.
From two days to two weeks during Winter or Spring break, externs observe and talk with alumnae/i sponsors and their colleagues. In most cases, externs participate in the normal routines of the sponsors, following their hosts through the workday or working on special projects. Often, externs spend time in several departments to gain insight into allied positions in the sponsor's career.
