In the Field offers an opportunity to learn more about different careers in an industry. Join us for a half-day group visit to an organization where you will:
- Explore a range of potential careers within that industry.
- Expand your network and exchange contact information with professionals from a range of departments and roles.
- Observe organizational culture during a workplace tour.
In The Field is a CCR-eligible program.
Undergraduate and graduate students and recent alumni up to two years who have completed the prerequisite online and in-person Career Exploration Orientation are eligible.
Participants who complete these prerequisites will gain first-access to placements for up to three years, as long as they are a current student or recent alumni up to two years.
How The Program Works
In the Field visits take place throughout the year between September to April.
You will complete a short pre-work document to prepare you to visit the organization.
Expect the placement to begin with a tour of your host’s work place followed by networking and connecting with a variety of professionals.
Deepen your learning with a short reflection survey at the end of your experience. This makes you eligible for CCR.
Once you complete In The Field, consider taking part in the Job Shadowing Program which allows deeper insight into a particular role.
