Career Treks are one to three day trips that give undergraduate students the opportunity to visit industry-specific employers across the United States and abroad. During the trek experience, students meet with three to four companies per day. Career Advancement welcomes alumni to get involved in the Treks Program by hosting students at your workplace for a site visit, which typically includes a tour of the facility, a view into daily life, and an overview of internship and full time positions at your organization. This is a unique opportunity for you to share your knowledge and experience with current UChicago students who are interested in your career path!
