Career Services is now accepting student applications for the Winter Break Externship Program.  An externship is a short-term, unpaid experience in which students shadow and observe a “day in the life” of a professional. They can be included on a resume and allow students to explore a career and develop networking contacts for potential internships or employment.

If you are interested in applying for one of the externships below, please indicate the site of greatest interest to you and submit a copy of your resume to clantrip@cbu.edu.  Sites are finalized on a “first come, first served” basis as applications come in, so submit your requests ASAP!

(I know, I know — each of those mugs serves a very specific purpose.)
