Career Exploration Programs

Career Connect: Employer Site Visits

Career Connect allows a group of Moody students the opportunity to visit employer offices in Austin and Dallas, with the possibility of expanding to further cities.  Visiting an employer site exposes students to recruiters working in positions and companies in which they are interested and obtain insight to what work life will be like. Employers benefit because students who may not know a lot about the company or positions for which they are qualified are exposed to opportunities that they haven’t considered before.

Past visits include: AXA Advisors, GSD&M, PepsiCo, Republic Editorial, The Richards Group, Fons PR, Strive Logistics, Longhorn Network, Dieste, The Marketing Arm, Hearts and Science, Reel FX, Texas Instruments, The Integer Group, TPN, and TracyLocke.
