Gain an insider perspective on a career field through a PhD externship. The Career Center offers a new program connecting doctoral students and postdocs to professionals for a “Day in the Life” job shadowing experience.
Externs are paired with advanced degree professionals and together will schedule a visit at the extern sponsor’s place of work. Your job shadowing visit may include activities such as a tour of the workplace, discussion of the extern sponsor’s career trajectory, meeting with colleagues, observation of work practices, or an overview of the organizational culture.
Eligibility: Open to doctoral students in all disciplines, and select postdocs.
Fall semester 2017: Humanities and Social Science PhDs
