The UCF Externship program has grown and is now offered during all three academic semesters (Summer, Winter, Spring). The online registration form (see link below) allows you the option to register for multiple programs at once, or register for one now and another later. 
The purpose of the Externship Program is to give students an opportunity to explore specific career fields and industries while networking with local employers. We are currently in the process of recruiting companies within and outside of the Central Florida community to serve as host employers.  Companies participating in the externship program are able to brand their organization at the second largest university in the country while identifying top talent for possible internship or professional positions.
This free program is open to all majors and class levels and is a one day to five day (8 hours to 40 hours) job shadowing experience. Because you know your business, industry and organization best, you determine what types of experiences UCF student externs matched with your company will have, from hands-on activities to strictly observational options, and how long they will last. Also, you can choose to host multiple externs in various career focus areas.
The online registration form to participate in the Externship program will be active throughout the year. You can register now for both the Winter 2012 and Spring 2013 program or register for Winter 2012 now and Spring 2013 at a later date.
The established dates for each semester's externship programs are:
Winter 2012: December 17 - 21                     Deadline to register: October 12, 2012
Spring 2013: March 4 - 8                                Deadline to register: January 28, 2013
Remember, there are no costs to participate in this program and the only paperwork required is the completion of a quick online registration form, found at:
Thank you in advance for your consideration. Career Services looks forward to working with you on this exciting and beneficial program.
