The Noble Alumni Career Office recently wrapped up their second annual Winter Externship Program. This competitive program provided 74 Noble alumni who are currently enrolled in college the opportunity to gain exposure and relevant experience in their field of interest, across 29 different employer partners. All externs were matched with a company for up to a week where they shadowed hosts, worked on projects, and networked with professionals.

Alumni Winter Externship Testimonials 

I learned that I would love to go towards a career in data analytics and software development. This externship made me confident about my choice and allowed me to understand more about what it means to be a part of a company like Civis.

Civis Analytics

I learned so much about Plante Moran. I NEVER met a person who is so happy to work at an accounting firm like they are. They had so much passion when talking about the work they were doing. It was great. I hope to be at a company with good people like Plante Moran and they are so diverse!

Networking doesn’t ever stop, even if you’re not interested in a certain field, a person can connect you to someone that is in the field you’re trying to get into.

Employer Winter Externship Testimonials 

Our externs were superb. Both were engaged, asking questions, fearless and extremely professional. They both surprised me with their 3D computer modeling skills as well! Their professions were a great match for our firm!

Valerio Dewalt Train Associates

Our externs were great – they had a very positive attitude and were ready to dive into projects.  They embraced an opportunity to present to staff, which could have been perceived as intimidating.
Uchicago Urban Labs

Our externs were AMAZING!!!!! I am so happy that they were able to participate and take a peek in what it takes to run the ops of non-profit. Both of them were super helpful and asked plenty of questions in regards to my role, Braven work, and the students we work with.
