There are shorter term opportunities that can be very helpful to students in learning about what they might be interested in. The terms “externship”  and “winternship” also have different definitions depending on the school or association. Often, an externship or winternship is similar to a short term internship or an extended job shadowing program. Sometimes the terms are used interchangeably.  


At Tufts University, they offer winternships for students during January break. At Cornell University, their global shadowing program is called Externship. At Colgate University, they support various job shadowing opportunities including one called “A day in the life.” Consider an externship, winternship or job shadow through your college or university to get your foot in the door and expand your learning and network.
