An externship is an opportunity to:
Observe the day-to-day activities of your Cal alumni sponsor, discuss specific jobs and careers with alumni and their colleagues, and sometimes obtain limited hands-on experience.
Find out what it's like to be a public defender, TV producer, doctor, architect, engineer, teacher, CEO, social worker, writer, scientist, consultant, attorney, IT analyst, professor, youth center director, financial advisor, and more.
Externships are available in a wide variety of career fields in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, New York, Washington, DC, and other domestic and international locations.
