Eller Externships (Job Shadow)
Eller Externships are a 1-day job shadow experience designed to be exploratory in nature. An externship may be a student's first experience in a professional environment. The majority of our applicants will be freshmen and sophomores looking to learn more about your career field and industry. However, junior and senior Eller students may apply too.
The Summer 2018 Externship Program will take place May 11th-25th.
The Winter 2018 Externship Program will take place December 14th-January 8th.
As a host, it is up to you to plan your Externship experience. Typically, the day of an Externship consists of some combination of:
- Observation of day-to-day activities
- Sitting in on meetings, client calls, etc.
- A tour of the company's physical space and functional departments
- Informational interviews with other professionals within your company
- Speaking engagements from other departments or executives
- Other activities you deem to be relevant and which will contribute to a student's learning
