Interested in learning more about the organizations we work with and
opportunities for USC students? Join us for an externship experience!
An externship is typically a day-long visit to an employer facility to learn more
about that organization and their career opportunities. Externships
consist of several components including such activities as:
- Facility tours
- Welcome from organizational leadership
- Overview of organization
- Overview of employment opportunities (internships, co-ops and full-time
- Networking with employees (often USC alumni)
- Job shadowing
The Career Center typically provides transporation (unless exernships are held in your
hometown during University breaks), the employer provides refreshments/meals (as
appropriate), and Career Center staff provide opportunties for reflection
following the experience.
