More than 50 Wash U students converged on New York City October 15th and 16th to participate in the 2014 New York Career Treks (Finance and Marketing) hosted by the Weston Career Center. These treks provided students with the opportunity to hear from alumni and learn about the qualities needed to be a successful intern and/or full-time candidate.
At the conclusion of the two-day company visit schedule, the entire student group participated in the 2nd annual student-alumni Roundtable event, providing each student the opportunity to gain valuable career experience insights from alumni. Students heard from alumni on how to navigate a career path and improve personal outreach and networking skills. The Roundtable event is a structured format to invite greater student-alumni connections. The event was held at the Harmonie Club, New York City.
The treks were escorted by Olin staff members, including Dorothy Kittner, assistant dean for corporate relations, Chris Presley, undergraduate academic advisor, and Mark Brostoff, associate dean and director, Weston Career Center.
