Career Treks

Treks are career and development and networking programs that create opportunities for students and alumni to connect with alumni and employers in key metropolitan areas across the country. As part of the treks, students and alumni interact with partner organizations and alumni professionals during corporate excursions, career fairs and networking socials.
