During a typical school year, ESA offers two career trips to employment hubs (typically Chicago & NYC) for a select group of members. After a one-year hiatus due to COVID, career trips are back for 2021/22! These trips offer a wonderful opportunity for students to get their foot in the door of the economics/business world.
About our Trips
While every company visit is unique, they all share common lessons and experiences on how to apply an education in economics to a career in the real world. Students in past years have had opportunities to build relationships with alumni in finance, banking, law, retail, and public policy, among other industries. Most importantly, these trips are very affordable due to grants from the Economics department here at UW. Applications for the Fall trip, as well as a list of company visits will be released in late October/early November, so stay tuned if you are interested!
As the semester progresses, companies reach out and notify us of jobs our members might be interested in. These will be posted here.
