NYC Trip Details—————————————————————————————————————————

Schedule

The Public Service Career Expo, co-sponsored with NYU, will take place on Thursday, March 6 at 3pm. A list of organizations that participated last year is attached for you to check out.

Immediately following the expo, Maxwell will host a happy hour with alums.

On Friday, March 7, there will be a schedule of site visits with a variety of public agencies and private and non-profit organizations. Some examples include the Economic Development Council, Clinton Foundation, NYC Department of Transportation, and Housing Community Renewal. Registration for these events will be open during the week of February 10th, so please be on the lookout for more information.

Alumni Connections

We are trying to identify alumni who would be interested in meeting with individuals or small groups of students for informal coffee chats on Friday, March 7. If successful, we will share the names and contact information with you prior to the trip. You may wish to begin to reach out to alumni on your own. Two helpful resources for this task are LinkedIn and the ‘Cuse Community (see the career office for more information)

Housing

An important part of the registration form will provide us with information to help secure housing for the trip. While we are asking local alumni to provide housing, supply may be limited. Please start to think of alternative options, including staying with family or friends or booking a hotel room.

Supplies

We will be providing printed nametags to everyone who attends the event. However, we also strongly recommend that each of you print or purchase business cards that you can distribute to alumni and recruiters.

Transportation

Students will need to make their own travel plans to and from New York City.
