Information for Students

Be among a small group of Harpur students selected to participate in the
Liberal Arts to Careers Externship!

Selected students will be matched with a professional for a shadowing experience over winter or summer break. Students and sponsors meet three to five times over the break, for at least one half day per session. The program is structured to ensure opportunity for success, but flexible to meet the needs of each individual pair. Students will be required to participate in an orientation prior to break. Following orientation, each pair will establish goals for their time together and plan logistics for their shadowing experience. At the conclusion of the shadowing sessions, students and sponsors will participate in an evaluation of the program, which will help identify areas for program improvements.
