WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE EXTERNSHIP PROGRAM?
The externship program is designed to give IPFW undergraduate students the opportunity to explore a specific career field while networking with professionals and alumni within the community.

ELIGIBILITY
Any IPFW current undergraduate student is eligible to participate in the March 5-9, 2012  [week of Spring break] externship program; however, only one will be selected for each opportunity.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE
To participate in the externship program, you will need to submit your resume and the additional paperwork on JobZone for the externship program.

MATCHING PROCESS
All applications will be reviewed after the application deadline has passed. Once applications have been read and processed, students will be matched with externship sites. Students who are assigned to externships will be expected to meet with a career counselor to review guidelines and confirm commitment to the externship program. The employer will contact you to set up the first meeting.

We will make every effort to place all interested students in suitable externships. However, we cannot guarantee placement for all students. Since the primary purpose of the externship program is for career exploration, note that students who have relatively less exposure to the career field and submit well thought-out applications will be given placement preference. Location may also be a factor in matching externs with externship hosts.

APPLICATION DEADLINE FOR STUDENTS
Students must apply for externships on JobZone. All externships will be posted on January 26th and the deadline to apply is on February 13, 2012. Interviews will be the week of February 20th, 2012.

UPCOMING DATES FOR EXTERNSHIP PROGRAM
Spring 2012 Externship Program: March 5-9, 2012 [Week of Spring Break]. You must complete your externship during that week.
