What is the Research Externship Program at Equilar?
The Research Externship Program at Equilar is designed for graduating students who are looking to begin working full-time in the summer of 2014. The Externship is with our Research department and serves as an excellent way to become more familiar with Equilar, the corporate governance and compensation analytics industry, and business/professional careers in general.
The Externship lasts over a two-day period and is unpaid. We will arrange for you to come in around mid-December, when most students are on winter break.

It is a two day program for a total of about 13 hours. We will hold the Externship during the week of December 16th – 20th, but are flexible with timing.

About the NEXT Series
NEXT is a unique conference that brings together four very distinct American brands: elite military, global business, top tier education, and social entrepreneurs. The purpose of bringing together these driving forces of innovation onto a single platform is for meaningful participation and social engagement among San Diego’s thought leaders and change makers to begin new conversations around the new military professionalism that surrounds us today.
There is a larger mission behind these talks – one of national urgency and great importance. Our military forces have adapted to overcome challenges unlike anything taken from our past. They are principled warriors, highly educated, service orientated and ready to continue their service in purpose driven organizations. Now, how will education and business adapt to a market change in military experience and professionalism?
The NEXT Series, powered by The Honor Foundation: A Transition Institute for Elite Military and The UCSD Rady School of Management, will launch annual discussions hoping to create a strong dialogue around a new breed of diverse military professionals.
