Chicago career trek

A few weeks ago, approximately forty-five Olin sophomores and juniors boarded a bus and made their way up to the Windy City. Once they had checked into Chicago’s illustrious Palmer House Hotel, the students had some time to explore the city, be it by meeting up with friends or sampling some authentic deep-dish pizza.

After a goodnight’s sleep, the students split into two groups, consulting and finance, and prepared for the long day ahead of them. While the consulting group made stops at Crowe Horwath, Navigant, and Bain & Co., those on the finance portion had visits at Citi, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley, and Lazard. After completing the visits, the two groups reconvened, boarded another chartered bus, and began the drive back to campus.

The trip was undoubtedly a resounding success. Students on both treks gained invaluable knowledge about the consulting/finance industry, as well as greater insights into the individual firms. Augmenting this success is the fact that students from the Olin Business Council were entirely responsible for the successful planning and subsequent implementation of the trip. Washington University and the Olin Business School are fantastic resources for students to utilize in their search for jobs and internships, be it through faculty or peer run programs.
