Since they have not posted this position publicly yet, I ask that you please only forward this to any graduates that you know are still seriously/actively looking for a job.”
“If you have anyone in mind, they are more than welcome to shoot me an email if they have any questions [CONTACT THE CAREER CENTER & GAMP OFFICE FOR THIS ALUM’S CONTACT INFO email@example.com or 313-4234].

Andrew Rieder of the Alumni Association shot the video from last week’s New York Trek from the New York Stock Exchange. Among the various stops along the tour, the eight selected Gonzaga students were able to see first hand the workings of the NYSE.
Interested in attending the NYC Trek next year? Space is limited and application are made available in the Spring. If you don’t want to wait until then for an eye-opening Trek experience, consider joining us for the Portland (Jan, 5th) and Seattle (Jan. 7-8) Treks this winter. Be on the look out for registration announcements!
Several Gonzaga students are in New York this week for the Annual GAMP New York Trek. Today the students had an opportunity to visit several high profile financial institutions in New York including the New York Stock Exchange, Deutsche Bank and the J.P. Morgan Chase headquarters. Students have the chance to sit down with several high ranking officers from these organizations and ask key questions about careers in the financial industry. Here’s a great photo of our students in front of the famous Wall Street Bull in the financial district.
We’ll send you more updates as the week unfolds.
