externships_are_comingExternships are coming…will you be ready?

An externship is a one-day to one-week shadowing experience in which students observe a “day in the life” of a professional CBU alumnus. Shadowing helps clarify your career goals, provides you with a realistic view of your career field, and puts you in touch with valuable networking contacts.

A list of available externship sites will be available soon.  Interested students should submit a resume and brief statement of interest regarding their chosen externship site to Cathy Lantrip at clantrip@cbu.edu.
