The Cornell Engineering Career Center and the Nancy E. and Peter C. Meining School of Biomedical Engineering are sponsoring two treks in January. These treks are a great opportunity to connect with professionals and alumni in the biomedical field. The first 25 students to register will be accepted. Additional students will be put on a waitlist in order of submission time.
Please note: transportation and hotel accommodations are not provided for either trek. Students must plan for travel to Boston or San Francisco and between companies.
The deadline to register is December 6, 2019.

The Cornell Career Services No-Show Policy applies to these two treks.
Relationships with alumni and employers are an important aspect of career development. As such, we hold our students to a strict attendance and cancellation policy. This policy is to ensure the maximum number of students are able to take advantage of this opportunity.
Due to the nature of this event, you must cancel by January 6th by 11:59pm or you may be subject to OCR Violation.
Alumni and Recruiter Events No-Show Policy
If you change your mind or your schedule changes after signing up for a Biomedical Trek, email firstname.lastname@example.org to remove your registration by January 6th at 11:59. After that time, if you elect to cancel your registration or cannot attend, immediately notify our office by phone or email. Depending on the circumstances, this will result in your being considered a “late cancellation” or “no-show.” If so, you will not be allowed to participate in career conversations, other Engineering registration-required Networking events or on-campus recruiting until you speak with a Career Development staff member. A second “no-show” will result in automatic forfeiture of the right to participate in all Engineering Alumni Career Conversation for one semester, as well as the inability to participate in on-campus recruiting for 1 semester.
Funds are available to assist with costs associated with off-campus experiences to advance a student’s professional goals. Find more information about how to apply here.
