Washington College Externship Program


An externship is a short-term supplemental experience and is often referred to as a job shadowing. It provides an opportunity for students to observe work experience but with some notable differences. These immersive experiences are shorter in duration (e.g., 1 – 2-days, etc.), offer students the opportunity to explore various job or career areas including help reinforce concepts learned in the classroom. The Center for Career Development is sponsoring an Externship Program from Monday, March 13, 2023, through (and including) March 17, 2023. Please review this section to learn more about these invaluable immersive experiences.
