Career Treks

WE'RE GOING PLACES!  

Attending a Career Trek with us is like a jumpstart to your career. You will have an opportunity to explore companies and industries far beyond the reach of the Salt Lake Valley! Treks usually take place during Fall or Spring Break and are focused on a specific industry. This opportunity is sponsored by the University of Utah Parent Fund.

BENEFITS:

CONNECT & build relationships with employers in highly desirable career fields & organizations
EXPLORE career opportunities and positions from a variety of industries
LEARN from hiring managers how to make yourself more marketable for employment
DISCOVER job or internship opportunities
TRAVEL to exciting and growing cities around the US

“This is one of the greatest programs that I have had the opportunity to participate in while at the U. The advice, information, and tips were worth sacrificing two days of fall break and getting work off. I found this to be very insightful as well as helpful in helping me see where I was in my preparation for a career in advertising, marketing, or Public Relations.”

“I can’t put into words how AMAZING the Animation Trek was! Thank you infinitely for arranging it all. Industry knowledge is so incredibly important but not talked about enough in our classes. Without a doubt this was one of the most influential experiences in my college career. I feel a lot more comfortable knowing that I can make it! It is possible! These connections and knowledge were priceless. Thank you!!”

“I personally guarantee you will be so glad you did! You get to network and shadow and really gain a new understanding of the profession you may want someday. Plus the people were so great and besides all the career perks, it's insanely fun!”
