Boston Externship Program

The Boston Externship Program is a one-week career exploration and networking opportunity over the course of spring break in March. This professional development opportunity will be available only for first-year students, and will also include multiple preparation meetings with the Career Development Center. During spring break, we will visit approximately 12-15 different sites within the Boston area. This program is the only opportunity of its kind. It is designed for highly motivated first-year students looking to explore the various career opportunities available upon graduation from Stonehill.

From Stonehill to Beacon Hill to Capitol Hill

Hill to Hill is a program for Stonehill students interested in a career in government, politics, non-profits and other organizations in Boston or Washington, D.C. Participants conduct at least five informational interviews and/or job shadows in the Boston area prior to spring break then travel to Washington, D.C. during spring break for five additional informational interviews with Stonehill alumni living in the D.C. area.

New York Externship Program

The New York City Externship Program is an intense week-long networking experience focusing on career exploration. Each year, a small group of students (sophomores, juniors and seniors) are selected to travel to New York City and spend the week meeting with prestigious, successful alumni in a range of professional settings to gain insight into a variety of career opportunities possible for students after graduation from Stonehill.

Previous Externship Programs

The Externship Program is constantly evolving and is quick to pivot when new opportunities arise. In the past, there have been programs in Los Angeles and Silicon Valley and organizers are constantly on the lookout for future destinations.
