The University Career Center's popular Intern for a Day program has historically connected UMD students with alumni, parents, and employers for in-person job shadowing experiences to explore potential career fields.

For the fall 2020 semester, we offered Intern for a Day Lite which matched 310 UMD students with professionals working in a field of interest to conduct virtual informational interviews!  Check back on this website for Intern for a Day opportunities in spring 2021.
