What is the Husky Treks program?

Husky Treks helps you explore your career options and gain more insight about career paths and job opportunities by getting a behind-the-scenes tour of different companies and organizations domestically and globally.  You will get exposure to company culture and learn about opportunities that may be available to you.

 

Here is what students have said about their Husky Trek experience in the past:

“An eye-opening experience on how {the company} operates and its company culture. From the panel, I learned that the staff is very passionate about their work, which is highly motivating for me. Additionally, I learned that the company is well organized, and each department has particular functions to do. I truly enjoyed my trek and would love to work there in the future.”

“I liked talking to the people that worked in the department, learning how they got to where they are now, and what skills they use on the job every day.”

“I think it is a great experience both for students who first started their college life and are not sure what they would be interested in and for students who are actively looking for jobs. It is always a great experience to know about more companies and see what kind of environment you might be fitting in.”

“I came out of the experience with a lot of insight into where the field of communications can take you, as well as information about the non-profit world!”

Who can participate?

Everyone! The Husky Treks program is intended for all students who are interested in exploring potential career paths.
