Thank you for hosting students of Southeast Missouri State University for our 2017 Job Shadow/Externship Program.
Externships are valuable career learning experiences in that they provide the opportunity for students to see first-hand what the day-to-day work activities and responsibilities are in various professions and industries.
The on-site experience will be 1 -3 days (depending on the employer) during the course of Southeast’s spring break (March 13-17, 2017). Unlike an internship, the externship is a learning opportunity and no salary will be paid to the student. Some of the learnings can include: a tour, overview of the company, insights into being successful in your organization and perhaps a meet and greet with executives. Although it is not required, we encourage companies to provide lunch as part of the program.
