Students sharpen their public speaking, goal setting and time management, interviewing and resume building, among other professional skills, in interactive career-readiness workshops.


The Externship Experience is a career exploration and skill-building program for high school students, designed and facilitated in collaboration with employer partners from a range of industries.
