Connecting Students with Alumni

Shadowing Programs

Cornell alumni and friends (including family members) host students in the workplace during semester breaks to give an insider's view of a career field as part of the Cornell Extern Program, FRESH, and the ILR Freshman Extern Program and WISP Program. The Extern Program offers over 800 opportunities representing a wide range of occupations to all undergraduate students.

Alumni Forums

Alumni participate in career panels, career days, on-campus recruiting, employer career fields, and information sessions to help students establish contacts and learn about specific career fields.
