Every full-time career development student gains hands-on experience at a local business or organization through an externship. The business or organization has the opportunity to “try out” a potential new employee, with no obligation, while relieving the stress of a heavy workload.
- Externship schedule can be coordinated to accommodate the employer’s needs. Hours and days are flexible, and can be agreed upon by extern site and extern (minimum 12 hours per week).
- Limited paperwork for the employer with maximum benefit of a qualified extern. The only required paperwork is an externship agreement, verified timesheets, and final evaluation.
- Externships are typically unpaid, however this is at the discretion of the extern site. Externs are to treat externships as if they were a “dress rehearsal” for employment.
- Externship coordinator will make one visit to site during externship, and will be available should any questions or concerns arise during the externships.
- Externship will conclude when the required hours are met (varies by training program, 40-170 hours); however, site can choose to offer full or part-time employment if the extern has proven to be an asset to the organization.
Mutual Benefits: Business receives the assistance of a trained student extern, and the extern benefits by gaining valuable on-the-job experience.
