Engage in an Externship

Get a valuable, insider’s perspective on a career and industry that interests you by participating in an externship.

Over the January break, sophomores, juniors, and seniors have an opportunity to shadow a professional in the field. During a two-to-five day period, you’ll become immersed in your host’s daily activities to gain a better understanding of their work, their career path, and their industry as a whole. Hosts include alumni, parents, and friends of Lafayette in diverse career areas, geographic locations, as well as in graduate and professional school. In addition to in-person externships, remote externships are available.
