Hi All,

Happy 3rd week of the semester—September is flying! I’m writing to share information about our line-up of fall career trek opportunities. This fall, the GCC is taking students to visit ESPN, Pfizer, and Hartford HealthCare’s Simulation Center, and to attend the Reach(OUT) LGBTQA+ Career Conference in Boston. These off-campus career exploration opportunities are open to students of all class years, majors, and career interests. Transportation is provided and there is no cost to students to participate.


Interested students should submit their approved resume to the career trek postings on Handshake, and complete the related google application form. If more students apply then we have space for, students who completed the application in-full by the application deadline will be selected via random lottery. Students not selected in the lottery will be put on a waitlist and notified if spots open up. Application deadlines vary from 9/24 – 9/30 and the Career Treks all take place in October, some around fall break. More information is below.


I would appreciate your help sharing on your blogs and with any students who you think may be interested. Attached find flyers and images for you to use and share as you see fit.


Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions. Thanks in advance for helping us spread the word about this exciting new program!
