The Career Connections program provides an opportunity for students to get first-hand insight into organizations and industries of interest. As a participant you will be able to choose up to two organizations to visit in NYC. Presenters at each organization will consist of alumni and other employees who will talk about the organization, the industry, their career path, skills and qualifications they look for in new employees, what students can be doing now to prepare for an internship or job in the field, and may also provide information on the internship and job application process. The day will conclude with a networking reception with alumni. Some past participants have made connections that have led to internships and full-time opportunities through these events.  

*Please note that students are responsible for their own transportation and expenses. Please contact Heather Champion at if accessing transportation provides difficulty for you. Selection for site visits is competitive because venue space is limited. Business or business casual attire will be expected.
