Announcing the 2016-17 Douglass Externship Experience (DxX)

DxX is an experiential learning opportunity during which students spend one to two weeks in workplaces to learn about a particular industry. 

During the externship experience, students work with their site mentors to get a glimpse into a potential career. Students can take on a project that they can complete within the short time frame and/or accompany you to meetings and other work-related processes. This short-term experience is an important developmental tool for our students. The comprehensive DxX program offers Douglass students extensive workshops in preparation for their experience. These workshops and the immersion experience of an externship can help students to clarify decisions about their majors and career paths.  

DxX is directed by Leslie Danehy, Ed.D.  Dr. Danehy has years of administrative and coaching experience and is committed to young women’s success.  In collaboration with Rutgers Career Services and under Dr. Danehy’s leadership, DxX will be a state of the art program, using the best educational practices for students’ learning and career development. 

To take part in DxX, or if you have any questions, please contact Dr. Leslie Danehy at Leslie.Danehy@echo.rutgers.edu; 848-932-3184.

 

By becoming a site mentor, you’ll play a key role in students’ future success while also providing your company with a pipeline of motivated potential employees. The Douglass Externship Experience (DxX) is an excellent recruitment service, providing an opportunity to evaluate potential employees without a long-term commitment. Read more »
