The University of Maryland Career Center's popular “Intern for a Day” program connects undergraduate UMD students with professionals for in-person job shadowing or virtual informational interviewing experiences to explore potential career fields of interest. For one day of job shadowing OR one-hour (per student) of informational interviewing, hosts provide UMD students with a solid overview of their industry and introduce them to key colleagues who can help provide students with the “big picture” of what it is to work in that industry or career field.

If you are a employer who is interested in participating as a host for Intern for a Day, click the link below for details — the deadline to register is Monday, Feb. 5th:
