First Year students experienced the School’s cross-industry expertise in action this fall, as Darden’s Career Development Center led a week of morning-to-evening internship recruiting opportunities.

As Darden’s first week of dedicated internship prep programming, students participated in Job Treks to industry headquarters around the country, including visits with asset management leaders and alumni in Boston, venture capital and technology firms in the San Francisco Bay Area and Seattle; luxury retailers in New York City, every major bank in New York City during the 21st annual Week on Wall Street, investment banks in Charlotte, North Carolina, and finally, an on-Grounds Consulting Camp in Charlottesville, VA.

“For the first time ever, every student in Darden’s Class of 2021 was able to participate in career programming — whether on-Grounds or around the country — preparing them to enter any major MBA hiring industry,” said Jeff McNish, assistant dean of career development. “Through close collaboration with Darden’s student-led clubs, network of alumni and recruiting partners, there truly was something for everyone in this week of career prep.”
