Career Treks

Career Treks are a career exploration initiative that allows students to travel to various cities in order to gain insight into career fields of interest. During the pandemic the Career Trek program was expanded to include virtual treks as well.

This is a great opportunity to for students and employers to network, discuss internship and full-time job opportunities, and for students to learn about the company's environment, day-to-day operations, and the hiring process and timeline.

Employers can sponsor a trip for a group of students to visit their city, tour their office, or meet virtually. There is NO COST to students to participate and meals are included during in-person treks.
