Career Treks

Career Treks are a career exploration initiative that allows students to travel to various cities in order to gain insight into career fields of interest. These immersive experiences provide behind the scenes opportunities for students to engage with an organization, shadow professionals in the workplace, learn about various career paths, meet with Notre Dame alumni, and more. The Center for Career Development will offer five industry-specific treks this Spring Break 2018 to Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.
