Event description: 
The AACC Spring Break Externship is a one-week unpaid internship during spring break (an ‘externship’) that brings undergraduate students into the workplaces of Yale alumni across the country. Externships will take place during the first or second week (March 9 - 13 / March 16 - 20, 2020) of spring break. The program is meant to give students the opportunity to gain exposure to a professional field of interest and to help them explore the multitude of career paths available to them. By working with or shadowing the alumni sponsor, the student will be able to gain hands-on experience. Specific duties during the week are left to the alumni sponsor to determine. For example, the alumni sponsor might have the student do a mini-project during the week, invite them to meetings, or allow them to help/shadow different people in the organization. Alumni sponsors can decide how many interns they would like to take for their externships.
