Job Trek Q&A

  • Why Host a Job Trek Visit?

    Students value having the opportunity to step inside corporate headquarters, visit a manufacturing facility and meet with members of your organization. They also appreciate the opportunity to connect with individuals working in the business that might be able to speak about talent needs and recruiting opportunities. 

    When Do Job Treks Occur?

    Job trek visits typically occur during Darden School breaks (i.e., Dedicated Recruiting Days, mid-December, early January), the exceptions being locations close to Charlottesville (DC-metro, Richmond, Charlotte) where day-long trips are feasible on student reading days. The Darden Week on Wall Street is scheduled for 17-19 October 2017 in New York City. The Bay Area Technology Trek is scheduled for 13-15 October.

    How Can I Learn More About Organizing or Scheduling a Possible Visit?

    While job treks are led by students, the Career Development Center works closely with them to organize visits and ensure success. For more information about possible job trek visits, please contact the following:
