As part of HUWIB's comp process, WIBterns attend an 11-week program in the fall to participate in weekly panels introducing them to the wide range of industries and opportunities available in business. Upon completing a final project and graduating the WIBternship in late November, WIBterns become Associates and are eligible to apply for a committee position.
WIBternship 2014 will begin in September. Take a look at last year's WIBternship calendar below to get a sense of what to expect for the schedule of panels. Last year's WIBternship panels included industry professionals, HUWIB alumni, and student intern speakers from consulting, finance, entrepreneurship, fashion, non-profits, marketing, and many other fields of business.

InFocus is a customized program for associates to explore the industries of finance and consulting with greater depth. In participating in either or both tracks, 20 women will learn from business professionals and fellow students who have worked in these two industries. Through hard skill and soft skill workshops that culminate in a case study and stock pitch competition at the end of the program, InFocus seeks to help participants acquire the skills necessary to be successful during summer internships or during next year's recruiting season.
In addition to InFocus, associates will also have an opportunity to explore an alternative career in greater depth. Associates will have the opportunity to attend upcoming events with professionals from journalism, technology, and the fashion industries in the spring semester. Both the InFocus and the alternative careers program will culminate with exclusive networking opportunities with sponsors at the end of the semester.
