Program Overview

Liberal Arts to Careers Externship (LACE) is an exciting Harpur Edge sponsored program that provides a select group of Harpur College students the opportunity to explore career options and gain insight into the realities of the workplace. Selected students are matched with an alumni sponsor for a shadowing experience at the sponsor's workplace. Matches are determined based on student interests, mentor availability and geographic location. Preference is given to current and rising sophomores.

LACE is not an employment program. There is no expectation that sponsors provide or arrange employment or internships; rather, this opportunity gives students a chance to meet professionals, learn about their experiences and get constructive feedback that will help them prepare for the future.

By participating in the program, students invest in their professional development. Students and sponsors are required to meet for a minimum of three to five times over winter or summer break for at least one half day per session. Specific dates are to be arranged between the student and sponsor. Students are responsible for their own transportation.
