Step 1: External orientation

The external orientation involves a limited pre-study of the organization where the fieldwork project will be carried out and the sector in which the organization is active. This study takes place after the organization in which the fieldwork assignment will be carried out has been identified, but before the student has his or her first official conversation (intake meeting) with the assignment principal. The objective of the external orientation is to obtain the information and insights needed for a successful intake meeting.
