Alumni Career Externship (ACE) Program

Each year the Washington University Alumni Association and the Career Center offer a unique career-shadowing experience for full-time Washington University undergraduates.

The Alumni Career Externship (ACE) Program is an opportunity to shadow an alum in his or her professional environment for anywhere from one to five days during spring break. Externs get an up-close sense of the types of skills, knowledge and capabilities they will need to acquire or develop to be successful in a particular industry.

Each November the ACE application is posted in CAREERLink along with the names of alumni hosts and their respective organizations. The externship experience takes place during the following semester’s spring break week.

Check back in November for more details and a link to the ACE application for spring break 2020!
