During Career Treks, students make connections and seek advice on landing internship and job opportunities. Students visit workplaces, where they meet in small groups with alumni and others working in media and journalism fields. These visits aren't job or internship interviews but informal meetings with alumni eager to share career tips. Media and journalism outlets previously visited include The New York Times, CNN, Fox News, Edelman, Google, Facebook, PopSugar, Goop, and Cohn & Wolfe. Locations vary each trip. Students selected for the trip typically have already completed courses in the Hussman School and have internship or related experience.

The trips are open to undergraduate majors and master's students admitted to the Hussman School. Students can participate in one trip per year.

The Fall 2019 Hussman School Career Trek schedule is:

  • Washington, D.C., on Oct. 3-4 (students should arrive by 5 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 3; employer visits will be on Friday, Oct. 4)
