The Georgetown Summer 2020 Virtual Immersions and Experiential Work (VIEW) program creates opportunities for students across all undergraduate disciplines, to gain skills and experiences in the virtual workplace during this period of economic uncertainty. 

The program reaches out to alumni to offer part-time projects, up to 50 hours of work, sometimes called “micro-internships.” These projects can be in any functional area (e.g., communications, writing/editing, marketing, research, analysis) in any industry (e.g. business, education, entertainment/media, non-profit, law, public sector) and should be an opportunity for students to grow their skills. 

Alumni and Friends of Georgetown provide the project description and preferences and the Cawley Career Education Center matches a student(s) with the required skills and interest. 

If you have a project in mind, please complete this Google Form (new window) to indicate your needs. Submitted projects will reviewed by Wednesday of each week and uploaded each Friday through mid-June. Project sponsors will be notified of their project match the following week and will the work with the student to determine a work schedule.

[Please note that all projects should comply with the Fair Labor Standards Act (new window) and should comprise of 50 hours or less of work per student across the span of the project. Accordingly, when developing a project, we encourage you to determine what type of experience your organization can offer, including whether it’s a paid or unpaid opportunity.]
