What are Immersions?
An Immersion is a unique opportunity to learn about an industry by visiting an organization's workplace. In a small group setting (~15), students will engage with professionals, be welcomed by staff, tour the company and explore their interests by experiencing a typical workday.
Immersions are half-day, on-site trips to companies and organizations. Each semester The Career Center regularly hosts Immersions focused on a diverse range of industries.

Students have the chance to ask questions to professionals in the field, go “behind the scenes” of a fashion boutique, work through a case study, role play real world problems, develop a PR pitch, create a business plan, network with Michigan alums, and find out about potential job and internship opportunities.
Since Immersions started in 2008, students have explored more than 30 different types of industries through visiting over 50 companies. Immersions have taken place around south east Michigan, but have expanded nation-wide as of the summer of 2013 to cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York City.
