The Xternship Program is an opportunity for students to gain first-hand experience in career fields of interest to them. By shadowing professionals in the workplace, students can explore and learn first-hand about various opportunities available to them after graduation. From the time we first started this program, it has been a success and well-received by the student participants and the business/professional mentors. We want to expand the program this year by including more mentors so that more students can participate.
The Xternship Program is typically offered during the late weeks of February into early March. However, if you find that you are busy during that time frame, you can always offer the student your time on another day outside of that period.
Since this is such a great learning opportunity for students, we encourage a full day commitment. However, a half day would also be accepted. The choice is yours.
Students will select mentors from a pool of business/professionals who agree to participate. However, we will keep your name and bio/resume on file for future years and contact you each year to determine your continued interest in mentoring. Before visiting your company, all students will be required to attend a mandatory meeting so you can be assured that students will be prepared to meet with you.
