Participate in the Northwestern Externship Program!

Welcome students from Northwestern University to your office.
Become one of the hundreds of industry-leading alumni around the world who host a Northwestern student for a premiere one-day job shadowing experience. Create an account and register for the Northwestern Externship Program (NEXT). Alumni host registration runs from December 6, 2016 through January 6, 2017.
Co-sponsored by the Northwestern Alumni Association and Northwestern Career Advancement, NEXT is a one-day job shadowing program that matches current Northwestern students with alumni across the world and across dozens of industries from consulting to non-profit work to finance.

As a NEXT host you will:

  • Register your externship before January 6 then rank the students who apply to your opportunity between February 8 and February 17, 2017.
  • Choose a date to host your student(s) preferably between March 20 and April 21, 2017, if you are matched with a student extern (most externships are held during Northwestern’s spring break; March 20 – March 24).
  • Host one or more students at your place of work for one day and provide insight into your career field.

Please contact us with questions at or 847-491-5648. We look forward to having you participate in this wonderful Northwestern tradition.
