Intern for a Day connects undergraduate students with alumni, parents, employers and community partners for one day internship/shadowing experiences.  

The Intern for a Day program is offered every fall and spring semester.  

The list of hosts for spring 2018 will be available in late January or early February!

In order to receive an application to participate in Intern for a Day, you must attend an informative, 30-minute orientation session that will cover the application process, how you will be matched with a host, best practices when shadowing your host on-site, and how to show appreciation to your host after your experience.

Spring 2018’s Mandatory Orientation Sessions (Choose 1 of 8 options)
All sessions will take place in the University Career Center.  RSVP, please:

**If there is only one orientation time that works best with your schedule and RSVP is at capacity, you are still welcome to join us. If your schedule allows for you to attend an orientation that is not at capacity, please RSVP for that session.**

Since there are 8 orientation times available, there will only be one make-up orientation available on Friday, February 9.  Email for the scheduled time.  No other make-up orientation options will be available. 

The majority of questions about how this program operates will be addressed during the mandatory orientation session.  Other questions can be asked via
