This one-day shadowing program offers current Northwestern students the opportunity to accompany alumni on the job in order to learn more about different professional fields. Students spend time observing and often working alongside their alumni hosts in order to gain insight into the practical aspects of potential careers.
For Alumni Hosts
If you are interested in hosting a Northwestern student at your workplace for NEXT, you may register online; registration will open in early December 2013.
Students will be able to browse the available externships and submit letters of interest and a resume to the NAA. If your externship draws interest from students, you will receive an email with links to the students’ applications. You will then rank your choices and submit them to the NAA.
All hosts and students will be notified if they have matched by the end of February. The selected student will contact you in late February or early March to set a date. The externship should take place between March 24 and April 25, 2014, or another mutually agreed-upon date.
