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.

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. Fees for treks will vary based on the trek agenda and location.
