New York City Career Trek

Student shaking hands with employer at NYC Career TrekThe New York City Career Trek for undergraduate students provides students with knowledge of companies and career choices in their field of study.  Alumni, parents, or friends of the Marist School of Management host the students at the participating companies.  In fall 2017, over 140 students visited companies in New York City and learned about internships and job opportunities. Since its inception in 2014, students who participated in the Career Trek have received and accepted offers in internships and permanent job opportunities from participating companies.

In addition to visiting companies, students participate in a networking event in the evening.  This provides them the opportunity to enhance their interpersonal skills in meeting and introducing themselves to strangers and selling themselves in a friendly, professional, and non-threatening environment.  Alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of Marist are also invited and attend.   Alumni understand the purpose of the networking event is to assist students in finding internships and job opportunities.   

Below are examples of companies that have participated in previous Career Treks:

AICPA, Allied Integrated Marketing, Amazon, Bloomberg, Cboe Global Markets, Cisco, Citibank, Evercore, Goldman Sachs, Haymarket Media, IBM, JP Morgan, Neuberger Berman, Northstar Travel Group, Oath (AOL), Ogilvy, Pfizer, Sony, Sprint, Talpion Fund Management, TIAA, UBS, Viacom, Voya, and Withum.
