Join UChicago's Externship Program!
Are you interested in getting more involved with UChicago Career Advancement? Sign up as a host for the 2014-2015 Alumni Board of Governors Externship Program!
Are you interested in getting more involved with UChicago Career Advancement? You’re in luck! Career Advancement is currently soliciting participation for our 2014-2015 Alumni Board of Governors Externship Program.
This 1-5 day job-shadowing experience gives UChicago alumni, family, and friends the opportunity to mentor current UChicago undergraduates (usually first or second-year students), who are interested in their industry and/or profession during winter and spring breaks. By participating in the ABG Externship Program, externs leave with a glimpse of office culture as well as what kinds of skills, knowledge, and capabilities are necessary to succeed in that industry.
The success of this program is absolutely dependent on the time and support of volunteers such as you!
These brief externships take place throughout the country, and we’re always looking to expand the number of opportunities in the Chicago area!
Would you be interested in hosting one or more student externs at your place of work this spring?
This year’s program dates are March 23-27, 2015. (If you are unable to host an extern for the whole week, it is not a problem; externships range in length from 1 to 5 days).
To register as an externship host, please complete the registration form on our website here: ABG Externship Host Registration Form. We would appreciate receiving your completed form by Friday, January 30th (this deadline is flexible).
If you have any questions or would like more details on this year’s program, please contact Sergut Dejene, Experiential Education Manager (copied) at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 773.834.5195.
Thank you for your consideration, and we hope you can join us this year!
