Carleton Externship Program in the New York Times

June 1, 2010

The Career Center’s externship program was featured in the Education Life section of the April 18 edition of the New York Times. The story talks about the experiences Carleton externs Amanda Sweet '10 and Julia Gold '10 had with externship host Gail Hochman P '12, a New York City literary agent. “I’m missing a week that I would have otherwise spent on the couch,” Gold told the paper. The story noted that neither woman had spent more than $40 by week’s end. “But it’s been a good investment in my future, time well spent,” Gold said. “A lot of great schools don’t prepare you for real life, there’s no professional development,” said Aleshia Mueller '01 in the story, another extern host who runs Reel Nomad Productions, a media production company in Minneapolis. Ms. Mueller agreed to allow Kristen Asp '10 to sleep on the sofa of her one-bedroom duplex over spring break. “The way I’m trying to get into this industry is more similar to the way that she went about it,” Asp says in the story.
