BESTernship offered to help acquire industry team experience

Employers tell us they seek individuals who can work cooperatively on real teams. Here is an amazing opportunity for a hands-on experience with an industry led real-life problem that will be solved (by you!) in working teams assembled from across the country and crossing the disciplines. Solutions may involve prototyping, non-traditional market research, UI design, business intelligence and more...

Based on input from the BEST application, you have indicated to us you would really like to learn by doing. Yet you might not have the time to do a full externship off-campus. You need professional skills before considering a career in industry, entrepreneurship or management. You are not yet sure if this is the career path for you.

No previous business experience needed to participate. All STEM postdoctoral scholars and grad students are eligible. Preference will go to individuals who have filled out a BEST application.

Please indicate your interest and apply using the instructions below. NOTE: this is not a boring webinar series! You will be tangibly involved in the project solution, rubbing virtual shoulders with high profile industry leaders.

For Cornell BEST Program participants there is a special discount code: enter - cornells1 - when applying. Be sure to also email sv27@cornell.edu to let the BEST Program know you will be attending so we can reimburse your full cost!! Apply via this link.

This BESTernship involves meeting online each week on Tuesday and Thursday from 8-9pm from June 24 to July 31.
