PACCAR graciously welcomed Gonzaga students during the Seattle Trek last year and will again in January.

The Career Center and the Gonzaga Alumni Mentoring Program are teaming up to bring students some valuable Treks to premier employers in the Northwest next month. The 8th annual Portland Trek will take place Jan. 5 while the 9th annual Seattle Trek will follow Jan. 7-8.

“The Seattle and Portland Treks are programs designed to bring Gonzaga students in contact with premier employers in the Pacific Northwest,” said Erin Shields, assistant director of GAMP. “Students of all majors and years are encouraged and welcomed to participate in the Trek Program.”

Through career fairs, networking socials as well as corporate excursions, participating students have multiple opportunities to develop their careers while still in school. Among the major employers students will meet are Boeing, Columbia Sportswear, Nike, Regence, Trail Blazers, Daimler, Microsoft, Nordstrom, Redhook, Alaska Airlines, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Deloitte, Port of Seattle, PACCAR, Widmer Brothers Brewing Company and many more.

The Treks are an excellent and effective way to bring students together with top employers and alumni from these regions. Whether you are a student who is interested in registering for the Treks, or an alum, parent or friend who wishes to participate in this exciting program, please contact the GAMP office at (509) 323-4048 or by e-mail.
