Externships

Career Services offers externships (1-2 weeks of job shadowing and assisting with current work/projects) after the fall and spring semesters.  Contact Lori Clark, Career Education & Programming Coordinator at  clarkl@etown.edu  for more information.

What is an externship?

An externship is an unpaid/short term job shadowing and assisting experience to help students gain an understanding of responsibilities associated with a career or interest.  E-town Career Services offers non-credit externships at the end of the spring and fall semesters (after classes end). These externships can be a week to two weeks in length (minimum of 30 hours - maximum of 80 hours). Participating in an externship provides students an experiential learning opportunity to reflect upon skills, values, and interests as related to career and purposeful life work.  E-town students interested in externships can be matched with alumni, parents, and friends of the College in a variety industries and regionally local cities.  Students seeking a longer and more-in-depth experiential experience should consider an  internship.
