Take a Trek with NCA

NCA’s Career Trek program brings a small group of NU students (~20-25) on-site to visit organizations, learn about industries, and network with alums. Typically hosted during breaks in the academic year, Career Treks take place both locally in Chicago and across the county in cities such as Los Angeles, New York, and Washington DC. A Trek is usually 1-3 days where students will have the opportunity to visit several organizations each day. Application information and participating organizations are shared on a timely basis throughout the academic year.

Students can apply for Career Treks via Handshake by submitting a resume and essay response by the deadlines listed below. Students will also have the option to submit a OneForm application (link available via Handshake posting) to be considered for financial assistance for travel and lodging. Students will be notified of acceptance and any financial assistance in advance of the trek and asked to confirm their participation.
