Career exploration trips enable students to understand first hand the opportunities for meaningful careers and what they need to do to compete for those opportunities.
These trips are designed to provide students with valuable career advice directly from professionals in the field. Visits are a great opportunity to make connections with alumni and friends of the university who could be potential mentors. They are not job interviews.
Career exploration trips generally consist of 15-20 students, a professor and a member of the student and alumni engagement team visiting 4-5 businesses along the Wasatch Front. These trips showcase the career and internship opportunities that exist in our own backyard. Trips for the 2014-2015 school year will take place on Fridays.
Each local career exploration trip will include visits to 4-5 companies, with each visit scheduled for an hour. The day of the trip, the group will meet at the Romney Stadium parking lot and then carpool to the visits. The schedule will resemble the following:
Students are charged $20 to participate in their first trip and $15 for each subsequent trip. This money pays for lunch, gas, coordination, and thank you gifts. This money is nonrefundable should a student back out after committing to the trip.
