Annually, the Career Development Office organizes its Chicago trip. This year it will be held February 27-28, 2014. Since many SPEA alumni live and work in the Chicago area, this trip provides excellent educational and networking opportunities for current students to meet with, and learn from, Chicagoland professionals. In the past, students had the opportunity to speak with 40+ different organizations in the public, private, and non-profit sectors through career panels & site visits. Additional alumni and employer representatives were present at the Thursday evening's keynote, reception, and networking event. In 2012, employers included Standard & Poor's - S&P, the City of Chicago - Office of the Mayor & Department of Transportation, the EPA, and the Shedd Aquarium among many others.
Please note: trips are *FREE*; but students are responsible for their own travel, accommodations, and most meals.
