Career exploration trips enable students to understand first hand the opportunities for meaningful careers and what they need to do to compete for those opportunities.
These trips are designed to provide students with valuable career advice directly from professionals in the field. Visits are a great opportunity to make connections with alumni and friends of the university who could be potential mentors.
Career exploration trips generally consist of 15-20 students, a couple faculty/staff members visiting 3-5 businesses along the Wasatch Front. These trips showcase the career and internship opportunities that exist in our own backyard. Trips for the 2016-2017 school year will take place on Fridays.
Each local career exploration trip will include visits to 4-5 companies, with each visit scheduled for an hour. The day of the trip, the group will meet at the Maverik Stadium parking lot and then carpool to the visits. The schedule will resemble the following:
Students are charged $20 to participate in each trip. This money pays for lunch, transportation, coordination, and thank you gifts. The fee remains the same if you have private transportation. The $20 is non-refundable.
