Annually, the Career Development Office organizes its Denver trip, which takes place before the Thanksgiving break. Denver, with its environmental and energy industries and its many federal offices & agencies, has been an increasingly popular choice for SPEA students post-graduation. (Denver has the second largest concentration of federal jobs in the US; Washington DC is the first.) This trip provides excellent educational and networking opportunities for current students to meet with, and learn from, Denver professionals. In the past, students had the opportunity to speak with 25+ different organizations in the public, private, and non-profit sectors through career panels & site visits. 20+ additional alumni and employer representatives were present at the Thursday evening's networking event. On previous trips, employers included National Renewable Energy Laboratory - NREL, the Colorado Department of Transportation, the Mile High United Way, and the US National Park Service among many others.
Please note: trips are *FREE*; but students are responsible for their own travel, accommodations, and most meals. The Career Development Office will negotiate a reduced rate at a nearby hotel for attending students.
The next IU SPEA Career Exploration Trip in Denver is November 6-7, 2014.
