Southern Illinois University Alumni Association Extern Program

Southern Illinois University Alumni Association Extern Program
The Southern Illinois University Alumni Association Extern Program offers up to 150 students each year an opportunity to experience their career through an externship program. This work experience is available to students attending Southern Illinois University.

The externships match students with positions within their chosen careers at locations throughout the U.S. Available positions are the result of alumni and friends of SIU at participating companies. Some of the companies offering externships include Major League Soccer, Wal-Mart, Kemper CPA Group, Illinois State Museum, Boeing, Chrysler, PepsiCo, and many others.

Qualified students will find an externship that matches their skills and career goals and be able to use their classroom knowledge in a professional work environment. The externships are offered every spring break. The program recently added a stipend to help externs with travel expenses to their work assignment locations.

The extern program is made possible through the SIU Alumni Association. Almost 150 students each year participate in the externship program that not only gives them real-life professional experience but also helps them to make good career choices.
