Spring Undergraduate Externship Hosts Needed

Hosts provide young Maroons with professional networking opportunities, which are increasingly crucial to their future success.

Undergraduate externship hosts can be alumni, parents and friends of the University. Hosts allow first- and second-year College students to see first-hand what a "day in the life" of a working professional is really like, and assess if certain careers are the right fit for their interests and skill sets. Hosts provide young Maroons with professional networking opportunities, which are increasingly crucial to their future success.

How does this benefit students?

Hosts engage students with their organizations, providing exposure to the tangible and day-to-day aspects of the job. Hosts often invite externs to sit in on meetings, let externs see the ways in which different departments of the organization interact, educate externs on the command structure and how professional advancement works, take externs to lunch with colleagues, allow externs to speak with other colleagues around the office about their roles, speak with externs personally about your own professional path up to this point, and possibly give externs a small project to work on, or shadow others on their projects.

How does this benefit me?

Undergraduate externship hosts provide students with the opportunity to engage in valuable career exploration by sharing their work experience with students. Alumni who host undergraduate externs have access to highly motivated and talented students for networking/recruiting purposes.
