A Paladin Career Trek took a dozen Furman students to Atlanta, Georgia, for a few days in early January. Organized by the Malone Center for Career Engagement, the Career Trek program offers students the chance to visit employers in other cities to learn about potential career opportunities and connect with local alumni.
Each employer spends a couple of hours with the group, presenting their businesses and sharing insight into the recruiting and hiring processes, said Jennifer Stoner, assistant director of employer engagement. Each visit also typically includes a tour of the employer’s site, allowing the students to see different workplace alternatives they might find themselves in after graduation, she said.
