There are no classes today or tomorrow, as students travel to Washington, DC and participate in an intense two days of job-hunt related activities organized by the Office of Career Services. The schedule is a solid wall of presentations, panel discussions, networking events, lunch with alumni, and receptions. Students use a bidding process to sign up for sessions, making their own decision on how completely exhausted they want to be at the end of each day. I frequently hear about job offers that connect back to the career trips, and students who are looking to DC (or NY) for their future work are enthusiastic participants in the trips.
