Spring 2020 Career Trek to Raleigh January 31, 2020 (All day) Raleigh, North Carolina

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 Spring 2020 Hussman School Career Trek schedule is:

  • Raleigh on Friday, Jan. 31
  • Charlotte on Feb. 6-7 (students should arrive by 5 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 6; employer visits will be Feb. 7)
  • San Francisco on March 8-11 (students should arrive by 5 p.m. on Sunday, March 8; employer visits will be March 9-10)


The Hussman School pays for the hotel stay for students on Career Trek. Students are responsible for transportation to and from the trip location and incidental expenses such as food. Travel assistance is available for students with financial need.
