NEXT 2018: Spend a day job shadowing a Northwestern alumnus this spring

You’re invited to register for the annual Northwestern Externship Program (NEXT) — a one-day shadowing program that allows current Northwestern students to accompany alumni on the job in an industry of their choice this spring to learn more about different professional fields. More than 500 alumni from organizations in a range of fields, such as NBC News, Argonne National Laboratory, The Walt Disney Company, Facebook, 3M, Deloitte, the Mayo Clinic and many more, have volunteered to host students. Registration runs Jan. 19 through Feb. 6 and accounts take up to 2 business days for approval. Co-sponsored by Northwestern Career Advancement and the Northwestern Alumni Association.

Learn more about the program and registration process at an information session (highly recommended, but not required to register for the program)
