John W. Rogers, Jr. Internship Program in Finance
The John W. Rogers, Jr. Internship Program in Finance provides career resources and funded internship opportunities for students interested in financial services. The program connects employers with exceptionally talented UChicago internship candidates, many of whom come from underrepresented backgrounds. All student participants have received extensive training for internships with nonprofit endowments and investment offices. Nonprofit endowments and investment offices in all geographic locations are welcome to participate.

Career Exploration Week
Career Exploration Week is a series of four-day programs in a variety of locations and industries designed to give incoming students the chance to explore a career and meet alumni and professionals.
Employers interested in hosting students on a site visit should contact Nelida Garcia at firstname.lastname@example.org. Engaging with these students is a great way to identify early talent to a group of students and showcase your firm.
Host a Trek
Our students. Your Campus.
Treks are a unique recruiting tool designed to connect employers directly with students. Throughout the academic year, Career Advancement’s trek program sends groups of 15-25 students to cities throughout the United States and around the world to visit top employers in the area. Participating organizations host students on-site for a one to two hour visit. The specific agenda is at the employer’s discretion, but some common site visit activities include discussion panels with current staff members, presentations on professional opportunities available at the organization, and time for answering student questions.
Treks are an efficient, low-commitment way for employers to:
- Connect with a pool of talented, high-achieving students
- Build their organization’s brand among UChicago students
- Promote internship and full-time job opportunities
- Mentor young professionals interested in their career field
To learn more about the trek program and how employers can get involved, please contact Erwin Paderanga at email@example.com.
Job Shadowing Program
The Job Shadowing Program gives undergraduates the opportunity to shadow UChicago alumni, family members, and employers at their place of work during winter, spring, and summer breaks. During a job shadowing experience, also known as an "externship", students get a firsthand look at the daily life in their field of interest, expand their professional network, and identify possible career paths.
Job Shadowing experiences give you the opportunity to support UChicago’s talented students as they launch their careers. During a job shadowing opportunity, undergraduate students shadow an employer host at their place of work for 1-5 days. This program offers you the chance to connect with high-achieving students at no cost. This is a fantastic opportunity to mentor students interested in your career field and maybe even find your next intern!
Please note that students wish to shadow around the world in a variety of industries: you do not need to be based in or around Chicago to participate. Typically, we see the highest volume of applicants looking for positions in or around major metro areas.
Previous hosts include: Amazon, the American Medical Association, the Art Institute of Chicago, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, DigitasLBi, the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, Google, Morgan Stanley, the Museum of Contemporary Art, POLITICO, and many more.
Job shadowing opportunities are unpaid, and students are responsible for arranging and paying for their own travel, housing, meals, etc.
