What is a job trek?
A job trek is a great way for students to learn firsthand about an organization, specific fields and a region. It is an opportunity to step inside a headquarters, visit workplaces, and network with alumni and employers. Trek visits may consist of presentations with Q&A session, tours, or panel presentations.
Why host a regional job trek and career events in Washington, DC?
Washington, DC is home to approximately 600 F&ES alumni in a variety of economic sectors. In a two-day period, current students will have the opportunity to meet with a large number of alumni and employers through trek site visits, interviews for jobs (applications in advance, selected by employers, interviews arranged by employers directly, and will be on-site), informal arrangements on their own and during the Friday night networking mixer. The DC trek can be beneficial to students who are interested in learning about a particular sector, the general lay of the land for environmental work in the DC area (federal, international conservation and development, etc.), or about the work of a specific organization.
