November 21, 2022 – Business: Upcoming Events, Opportunities, and Resources

Hey Hoyas!

Last week, I shared some really neat avenues to find funded professional experience. Because the deadlines for these two programs are very soon, I want to give them one last plug before your Thanksgiving holiday begins.

First, the applications for the PENNER AWARD are open until 9:00amET Nov 29. The Penner Award offers a stipend to juniors and seniors with financial need who are applying to unpaid internships. You do NOT need to have secured your unpaid experience before applying! Find more information at one of their virtual info sessions on Nov 16 and on this page.

Second, the Virtual Immersion and Experiential Work Micro-Internship (VIEW) Program aims to provide students with opportunities to develop real world resume-building skills through short-term project work completed in a virtual environment. These paid “micro-internships” are up to 60 hours of work and will take place between January 3 – February 24.  Applicants must submit an application by November 27.When you apply to a project, you are committing to working on this project, if selected. Apply to a maximum of three projects on Handshake under the employer, Georgetown VIEW Program. Below is a sampling of projects needing business-related skills.
