Job Trek Q&A

  • Job Trek Q&A

    Why Host a Job Trek Visit?

    Students value having the opportunity to step inside corporate headquarters, experience your company first-hand and meet with members of your organization. They also appreciate the opportunity to connect with individuals working in the business that might be able to speak about talent needs and recruiting opportunities. 

    When Do Job Treks Occur?

    Job trek visits typically occur during Darden School breaks (i.e., Dedicated Recruiting Days, mid-December, early January), the exceptions being locations close to Charlottesville (DC-metro, Richmond, Charlotte) where day-long trips are feasible on student reading days. The Darden Week on Wall Street and the Bay Area Technology Trek are in the process of being planned for the 201-19 academic year. 

    How Can I Learn More About Organizing or Scheduling a Possible Visit?

    While job treks are led by students, the Career Development Center (CDC) works closely with them to organize visits and ensure success. For more information about possible job trek visits taking place either in the U.S. or internationally, please contact Casey Floyd, director of employer engagement and recruiting at the CDC.
