Do I have to set up my own appointments?
No, all schedules will be coordinated by the faculty & staff; however students are encouraged to be pro-active and research and recommend companies they would like to visit. If there is sufficient interest in specific companies that are not on the BYUI schedule, efforts will be made by BYUH Career Services to secure appointments where possible.
I’m looking for a job not an internship, can I still attend?
Yes, all students are eligible and encouraged to attend; in fact, around 25% of the students who attended previously were seeking entry-level positions.
What companies will we be visited?
That depends on the mix of students who are accepted and their career interests. The faculty and staff will set up appointments that are most applicable and of most interest to the students. A list of potential company visits from previous trips can be seen on the individual city pages. It is important to make sure that companies that you would like to visit are included on your application so they can be evaluated for inclusion.
I am from the area, can I meet up with the group and stay with my family?
All students are required to stay at the reserved hotel for logistical reasons, even if arriving separately or already on site. Students who meet on location are required to stay with the group the entire trip and attend all meetings, including the evening fireside. The cost will be discounted if the student is responsible for own travel to location.
Can I attend more than one CareerConnection?
Yes, but if you have attended one previously, priority may be given to students who have not.
Will I be able to see the sights of the city?
An evening fireside is typically planned on each trip, however free time is available for students to experience the sights of the city each evening.
