“Why are you here and not somewhere else?” is a Booth mantra that manifests itself in many ways in our community. With Booth’s pay-it-forward culture in mind, it was a no-brainer that Reed Semcken and I applied to be the 2018 Marketing West Trek leaders. Booth offers a variety of career treks, ranging from “Bank Week” in New York City to the Healthcare Trek in California.

Every year, after wrapping up their first quarter, hundreds of 1Y Boothies embark on Career Treks. These treks are organized by 1Ys, with support from the various industry groups. Career Treks are an opportunity for the students to visit companies, big and small, in their office space to understand the organizations’ values and culture. This year, we had students on the Tech Trek, led by Eileen Feng, Aakanksha Marwah, Laurie Beth Michaelson, and Asad Hassan. Two marketing treks: one to the East Coast led by Patrick Yate and one to the West Coast led by Candace Tkac and Erin Wang. Investment Management Group trek also went to the West Coast, led by Juan Pablo Sans Quiroz, Samantha Xue, and Yan Zhang. And, for the first time ever, we had a Health Care Group Trek to the west coast, led by full-time 1Y Inbar Goodman and two part-time students Caroline Cornelius and Changhao Wei.
