Spring Break Externship Program


What is the AACC Externship Program?

Do you want to explore a field you’re curious about? Would you like mentorship in a field you’re already interested in? Want exciting spring break plans? Then the AACC’s Spring Break Externship program is perfect for you! The program is a one-week “externship” during spring break (March 9-13, 2020) that brings undergraduate students into the workplaces of Yale alumni across the country. We’ll match you with an alumnus in a field that intrigues you, and you’ll spend the first week of spring break observing, learning, and getting hands-on experience in that field. The program is meant to give students the opportunity to gain experience in a career they are interested in or to help them explore the multitude of professions available to them.

How can I get an externship? (More updated information to come)

1. Check out all of the opportunities.

Review all of the externship opportunities posted on this page. Note that the AACC does NOT provide housing, so you want to consider that when choosing which externships you would like to pursue. Most students apply to externships that are close to their hometowns.

2. Choose the externship(s) you want.

You can rank up to 3 externships you would like to apply to. Sponsors will not be able to view these rankings.

3. Fill out a short and sweet application and send it to us along with your resume.

Apply to the externship(s) you want by filling out this short form and by sending your resume to alumni.aacc@gmail.com by November 25th, 2018 at 11:59pm. All applications and resumes will be forwarded to alumni sponsors, who will choose the externs.

Note: A limited amount of funding is available–an application and further details will be provided to applicants following acceptance.
