Why Should I Go on an Employer Site Visit?

Riley Greenwood

"Simply put, Career Employer Site Visits are incredible! I attended the Going Global Career Employer Site Visit and it was very eye opening and connected me with some valuable networks.  The most important connection I made was with the World Trade Center Utah.  I had done my research and really wanted to get involved there and the Site Visit put me right where I needed to be to build my network and boost my chances of joining the team.  I applied for their Business Outreach and Programs Fellowship and ultimately got the job in large part to the connections I made with WTC Utah. " - Riley Greenwood, Economics '16

"A Career Employer Site Visit helped me narrow down where I want to work and expand my network. The career coaches were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Now I am great friends with one of the organizations, Kidnected World, that I was introduced to by a Site Visit, and I sometimes collaborate with them. Because of a site visit; I have made great friends who are passionate about helping kids in our community and all over the world. I feel so grateful to have met them, and to have participated in an Employer Site Visit." - Shareen Kayyali, International Studies
