Career Trek

The Career Trek program brings students into the workplaces of Emory alumni and friends to expose them to potential career paths and broaden their understanding of industries.

The program leverages Emory’s well-positioned and successful alumni in major cities across the country who are excited to share their insights and personal career stories with students.

Every Career Trek includes a variety of experiences that help students envision everyday life in major cities across the country.
