I can’t recommend FESinDC highly enough to next year’s class. The social and environmental challenges we face collectively could not be in better hands than with F&ES Alumni. Thank you for making it happen!

What is a job trek?

A job trek is a series of employer site visits.  It is 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.
