Join us on the New York Connection trip on Friday, March 31st, 2017. This trip offers a great opportunity to join Emerson alumni and friends in New York City for a full day of exploring and networking. Industry professionals offer knowledge and networking opportunities that can help jumpstart your career.

We take up to 60 undergrad students to New York for the day to visit different employer sites and explore what it’s like to work in New York City. You have the opportunity to network with employers/alums, ask questions about their experience, and tour the company. At the end of the day, there is a small reception with Emerson alums to give you a chance to interact in a more casual setting, and on a one-on-one basis.

Because of limited space, this trip will be on a first-come first-served basis. Registration will open on March 1st and the registration fee will be $60. This fee includes: roundtrip transportation on a private charter bus that departs from Emerson College, breakfast, and a light dinner during the reception.

There are 4 tracks which include 2 employer sites in each. You can only choose 1 track when registering, and you must stick with that track during the trip. Below are your options:
