For over 35 years, Augustana College has been providing real world experience for students through Business Day, the premier job shadow event of the Quad Cities area.  Typically this event is held in April. 

Students look forward to spending a day in the "real world" networking with local professionals.  They ask questions about daily activities, the company, and the industry, knowing that real world experience goes hand-in-hand with classroom study. Students compare their academic work to skills required for success in today's business environment. They learn about corporate leadership by communicating with TODAY'S business leaders. Business Day also provides an opportunity to explore summer internships and jobs!

Companies learn about today's generation of high potential college students. They connect with students seeking part-time jobs, full-time internships, and full-time career positions, and provide real-life examples of academic studies. Companies take the opportunity to communicate the strengths of their organizations to their students. Company sponsors link with TOMORROW'S business leaders.

* The Carver Center is located west of 38th Street between 5th & 7th Avenues.  Click here to view a map of Augustana's campus.
