The Overtime Program
Students are not always able to participate in a traditional 8-12 week internship, but still want to gain valuable experience with the limited free time they do have during summer. The Overtime Program was developed to allow students to participate in much shorter, uniquely created, experiential learning opportunities that are tailored toward the individual’s interests and availability.
Potential opportunities include:
- Shortened internship experience of 1 - 4 weeks
- Temporary work
- Job shadow
- Company visit or tour
- Onsite or remote projects
- On campus events and visit by employers
- Informational interviews
How to Apply:
Submits an application on Handshake.
Each application will consist of a resume and the completion of a survey to detail the student’s preferred industries, location, type of opportunity, and their availability.
We strongly encouraged to submit your application BEFORE Sunday, 23rd February by 11.59pm.
All applications will be compiled and shared with carefully selected employers.
All resumes submitted will be pulled into a single document (known as a “Resume Book”) and made available to employers on Monday, February 24. The Qualtrics survey data that details each student’s preferences and availability will also be sent to employers. Applications submitted after 23rd February, will be collated at the beginning of each week and distributed to employers on a rolling weekly basis.
Employers will then reach out directly to students.
The employers are then encouraged to reach out to any student/s through email to briefly outline the type of opportunity they can provide and begin a dialogue with the student. In response, the student may have some clarifying questions via email/phone, before confirming their availability and interest for the opportunity!
