Career Days are informational, “day in the life” events with a specific industry or functional focus, including Marketing, Healthcare, Finance, Consulting, Entrepreneurship, Operations, and Energy. Employers who participate in Career Days have the opportunity to represent their organization as a key industry player and introduce students to new career paths and opportunities in their field. Co-organized by the Student Organizations and Industry Practice Leaders, Career Days typically are scheduled on Fridays during the fall semester. Alumni and recruiters can participate through panels, keynotes, roundtable discussions, or networking receptions. To get involved, contact an Industry Practice Leader.

Treks have brought groups of 10 to 100 students to employer destinations including New York, London, San Francisco, Tokyo, Boston, Hong Kong, Washington, D.C., and more.
