Wall Street Trip
This popular program takes approximately 20 William & Mary juniors (with a GPA of 3.25 or higher) interested in careers in investment banking, trading systems and risk management platforms, hedge funds and asset management to visit companies in New York City and helps prepare them to be competitive for internships and ultimately for full-time employment. This program is not limited by major and all students interested in the field are welcome to apply to attend.
A Day in DC
Every year, during fall break, the Office of Career Development & Professional Engagement arranges a series of site visits to the workplaces of W&M alumni who are working at federal agencies, think tanks, public sector consulting firms, and nonprofit organizations. This experience is a great way to discover what it is like to work in these organizations and to ask questions about pursuing various career pathways in Washington D.C.
