As a junior, visiting organizations has become increasingly important in helping determine the direction in which I want to take my search for an internship. Additionally, the relationships I’ve developed through networking on the road trip have been invaluable for my professional pursuits. This road trip has given me first-hand exposure to IT careers through interactive presentations and Q&A sessions at some of the top relevant organizations in the realm of the financial industry. The road trip also offered the unique opportunity to experience the cultures of each organization as we toured facilities and interacted with current employees of practice from top-level executives to new hires. From the experience I was able to develop a great sense of which organizations that I could envision myself having a future career with. Now I feel much more confident in what organizations I want to pursue an internship with, and what opportunities they have to offer me.
