Georgetown University Virtual Immersions & Experiential Work (VIEW) Program

GU Virtual Immersions and Experiential Work

The Georgetown VIEW (Virtual Immersions and Experiential Work) program aims to provide students with opportunities to develop real world, resume-building skills through short-term project work completed in a virtual environment during this period of economic uncertainty. Alumni submit part-time projects, up to 50 hours of work across 4-6 weeks, sometimes called “micro-internships,” for students to work on.

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. Not sure what a VIEW project might look like? See some previously submitted examples below.

Marketing/Social Media Projects

  • We are looking for a content creator to produce engaging social media posts and develop a social media campaign targeting our audience within healthcare. While it is not necessary to have a healthcare background, we are looking for a student who is passionate to make an impact for the elderly.

Research/Analysis Projects

  • Research and write a series of articles focused on marketing techniques and business development tools tailored to a $122B sports industry. Students will work on writing concisely and with client focus. Where available, students may also work on grant proposals. Articles will be published in company’s digital resource center and disseminated via various social media channels. Articles may also be cross published in industry media publications, as appropriate.

Writing/Editing Projects

  • We are seeking multiple students to help us with grant proposal writing. These roles will be high-responsibility with coaching and frequent check ins. The time commitment is 5 hours per week. Preferred qualifications: Some interest in and familiarity with economics, political science, and/or activism.

The VIEW program generally takes place in January and June with this general timeline.
