MIT Career Services in GECD led 70 students on five site visits to employer offices during IAP. Students visited Vertex, Formlabs, Sanofi, iBoss, and IBM.
These visits, organized by the Employer Relations team of Career Services, were open to the entire student body. Attendees were almost evenly split between undergraduates (41%) and graduate students (46%), who represented a variety of MIT courses. Some alumni and postdocs also joined the visits.
GECD is actively seeking to increase first year engagement with Career Services; one in seven of all attendees to this year’s site visits was a first year undergraduate.
Krystal ’17, a course 20 graduate, wrote about her experience attending a company site visit in 2015 in her “13 Things to Do Over IAP” series for the MIT Admissions blog.
