Spend a day during your winter break getting an inside look at an employer!
This January, employers around Texas are opening their doors to UT College of Natural Sciences students for a one-day company visit called the Externship Program. This is an excellent opportunity for students to visit an employer to see first-hand what professionals in their field of study do on a daily basis.
There are over 30 companies in participation this year. Please note that company availability varies by major.
Follow these easy steps to view and register for the Externship Program today:
- Log into ScienceWorks
- Click on "Career Fairs & Events" from the menu at the top of the page
- Under "Category" select "Externship" and click "Search" to see those opportunities available to you
- Carefully review the date, time, and location of the visit and, if you are able to attend, click "Register for Event"
*Please note that space is limited for company visits. If you do not see any opportunities in ScienceWorks it is either because the externship opportunity has been filled or there may be limited availability based on your major.
