Here in the Career Center & the  Gonzaga Alumni Mentor Program (GAMP) we are gearing up for the Seattle & Portland Treks coming your way this January.  These events are designed to get your foot in the door with some of the employer leaders in the Pacific Northwest.

Portland Trek will take place January 5th with Seattle on January 7th-8th, 2009.

Among the events planned are excursions to local companies, career fairs exclusively for Gonzaga students and networking socials where students will meet alumni for the purpose of making valuable employment contacts.

Employer partners in Portland include: Portland Trail Blazers, Regence, Nike, Columbia, adidas and Widmer.

Employer partners in Seattle include: Boeing, Nordstrom, Amazon, Accenture, Microsoft, PACCAR and Redhook.

All class years and majors are encouraged to participate, as career development occurs for students across all four years.  Freshmen and sophomores can use the events as a way to learn more about the expectations of employers while juniors and seniors can make contacts for future internships and full time positions.

Registration will begin next week on November 13th.  Space for excursion is limited, so make sure to register as quickly as possible.

If you have questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact the GAMP office at 509-313-4048 or gamp@gonzaga.edu.
