Commerce Career Services organizes student trips to visit with employers in such key cities as New York, DC, Richmond, and San Francisco. These trips provide students with invaluable opportunities to gain an insider perspective on companies and industries, along with rich networking experiences. Previous trips have focused on finance, marketing, advertising, start-ups, and technology, and have included visits to industry leaders across multiple industry sectors.
Information regarding the trips, with instructions on how to apply, is emailed to McIntire students approximately two months before departure. Students are responsible for all expenses, including personal travel, meals, and accommodations. They are encouraged to pair up and find hotel rooms or stay with friends/family. Need-based stipends may be available to offset trip expenses. The University assumes no liability for students' travel, and all students must sign liability waivers in order to participate.
