Career Road Trips

Career Road Trips are day-long trips to nearby cities and towns that provide educational and cultural experiences for Duquesne University students. Road Trips are usually limited to a small group of 5 - 15 students to allow for more personalized experience and networking opportunities.

During a typical Career Road Trip, you will

  • learn about the work environment of the host company
  • take a tour of the company offices
  • meet with company representatives, which often includes management personnel as well as Duquesne University alumni
  • engage in workshop and skill-builidng activities, such as what employers look for in a resume and interviews

Past trips include Columbus Blue Jackets in Columbus, OH. The Career Road Trip to Washington, D.C. included a visit to the office of Congressman Guy Reschenthaler (PA-14), the Capitol, and the United States Institute of Peace

Students who register are expected to be on time for the Career Road Trip and stay throughout the program. No cancellations will be accepted less than 48 hours prior to the Career Road Trip. If you cancel less than 48 hours prior, or if you fail to show, all privileges with the Center for Career Development will be revoked until you meet with Martin Black, Associate Director for Alumni Career Connections and/or Linda Loewer, Internship Coordinator, in the Center for Career Development. 

Companies spend much time and effort to develop their programs for Duquesne University students. Sudden cancellations are unprofessional and unacceptable. Repeated cancellations are documented in your file and repeated infractions may be cause for dismissal from the Career Road Trip Program.
