Career Treks

A CLOSER LOOK

Each semester, the GCMC organizes in-person career treks on various topics throughout the East Coast. These treks are open to a limited number of current MBA, MSBA, and MAcc students, and in the past have included visits to Washington D.C., Richmond, Charlottesville, Norfolk, Charlotte, and Raleigh/Durham.

Each trek provides W&M students with an in-depth view of the host company's profile—including their mission, culture, client profile, key projects, and more. Often hosts will present a Case Scenario, so visiting students can come away with a deeper understanding of the work done by the organization. Companies may use the visit as an opportunity to promote open positions, discuss skills required for employment, and explain the hiring process at their organization.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, our in-person treks have been converted and expanded to regional virtual gatherings via Zoom. Regions for virtual trek visits now include the West Coast, Mid-West, Northeast, and Southern areas.

LEAD THE WAY

To serve as a trek host, employers are asked to commit to a one hour information session. To contact a member of our Corporate Relations Team and learn more about becoming a trek host, email [[m|hirewm]].
