Career Treks

Paladin Career Treks are opportunities for Furman students to engage in career exploration and professional development by visiting top companies across the nation. Paladin Career Treks typically include visits to 2-4 organizations in a specific industry, plus a networking event with alumni in that area. Visits to organizations may include alumni panels, facility tours, presentations by human resources professionals, and networking opportunities that allow students to learn about career paths and to connect with professionals. Transportation, hotel accommodations, and meals will be provided on career treks.
