Signing up as an Externship Host requires a short term commitment, typically two days during Bucknell's winter break (between mid-December and mid-January). Externship Hosts can set the dates or arrange them with the student match.

During the externship, you are asked to provide your student(s) with:

  1. an itinerary for the experience (samples available in the Host Handbook below)
  2. an overview of your industry
  3. a glimpse into the world of work

Please contact the Career Development Center at or 570.577.1238 with questions.

Getting Started


Hosts and students are asked to evaluate the program and the student(s) after the externship. An online evaluation form is sent to all Externship Hosts prior to your student(s) visit.
