Student Career Trek

A Career Trek is a student’s ticket to career exploration in another city. Each Career Trek takes a small group of students to major cities like the Bay Area, Washington D.C. and Portland. Students get the chance to visit a range of companies, from global companies to startups. They connect with UW alums excited to help the next generation, experience work cultures first-hand and see the city with fellow Huskies.

During the first Career Trek to the Bay Area in March 2016, 12 students visited companies like Google and Airbnb. Destinations for other treks included Portland, Washington D.C. and another visit to the Bay Area.

The application deadline for the fall 2017 Student Career Trek to Los Angeles has passed. Stay tuned for the next opportunity! Future destinations include D.C. and New York, March 18–24, and Portland, June 10–13. Stay tuned for details!
