FFW: Student Innovation Trek to Silicon Valley Panel

Several of the student participants in the Silicon Valley Innovation Trek will discuss their experiences on this fully-funded CCI-led trip to explore careers involving innovation.

After this week-long Student Trek where they were immersed in daily job shadowing experiences, employer site visits, small group career path reflection dinners, and an Innovation Summit networking reception, our 10 Middlebury undergraduates returned to campus for the start of the spring semester with a better understanding of how to pursue career paths involving innovation in organizations ranging in size from start-ups to Fortune 100 companies.

Student Treks are unique “living and learning” cohort experiences designed over academic breaks, engaging students with multiple alumni and organizations in major cities to explore specific career fields of interest. Learn more about Student Treks on the CCI website.
