From October 27 to October 30, Falk College Career Services will guide 20 Falk students through tours of 8-10 Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, MD employers, and host 3 evening events aimed at introducing students to Syracuse University resources and alumni in the National Capital Region.

Falk College will cover most student expenses, including transportation, hotel, employer visits, and most meals. However, upon selection, students are required to provide a $100 non-refundable deposit, and should expect to pay for 2-4 meals out of pocket.

This trip is open to all Falk students, but given its focus on career exploration, priority will be given to sophomores and juniors. Employer visits will focus on the following career areas: Health and Human Services, Research and Policy, Federal and Non-Profit, and sustainable global agriculture. An up to date list of confirmed employer site visits is available on the Handshake event page.

Again, all interested students are encouraged to apply! However, submitting the application does not guarantee selection. The application deadline is September 25, 2019.
