Meet New People Over Fall Break In Chicago (While Exploring Cool Internship/Job Opportunities)

Michigan is a huge campus. It can be difficult to find people who share common interests and goals.

There are student orgs but those usually require a commitment that lasts months.

If you only have a day or two but still want to meet people that share your interests then we have fun get away trips called Immersions that are designed to help you do that and more.

Immersions are field trips where you and other Michigan students get a chance to explore cool companies and meet new people.

Those people include Michigan alumni as well as other professionals who work at cool companies.

These trips can help you stand out in your internship/job search because of the people you meet and the knowledge you gain.

We'll be taking a group of twenty students to visit BBDO, Golin, and FCB to see what it's like to work in advertising and communications (including digital and social media).

And we’ll also be taking a group of twenty students to visit Yelp, Enova, and News America Marketing to see what it's like to work in organizations that are centered around technology and data.

Transportation from Ann Arbor to Chicago (and back) is provided by the University Career Center. 

So whether you’re looking to get hired or just want to learn more about what it's like to work in Chicago or at certain companies or industries, you’ll have that opportunity over Fall Break — as well as the opportunity to meet new people and make great connections along the way.

***** The deadline to apply to the Fall Break Immersions is FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28TH *****
