Take a Two-Day Trip, Find a Lifelong Career

Do you want to explore your post-graduation options? Then put down the pamphlet and pack your bags!

Treks are career exploration experiences that take groups of 10-20 students to meet face-to-face with potential employers. Each trek features a different city and concentrates on professional opportunities in a particular career field. Career Advancement treks take place throughout the United States and around the world.

Treks are designed to give students a practical understanding of both daily life in their field of interest and how they can best prepare themselves to successfully find a career in that field. Participating students have the opportunity to expand their professional network, learn more about potential jobs and internships, and find out whether a particular career field matches their interests, skills, and values.

Career Advancement encourages students at all stages of their career development process to attend treks. Previous trek attendees have reported that their trek helped them:

  • Clarify their career goals
  • Feel more confident in networking situations
  • Identify concrete ways to secure a career in their field of interest
