Who?

  • College students from EACE member institutions with an interest in exploring career field opportunities. College/Universities do not need to hold a group membership for their students to be eligible.

Road Trips to the Real World is an exclusive opportunity for college students to learn firsthand about a career field, network with top employers and their employees, and explore internship and job opportunities. This is the perfect chance for students to get a head start on their careers!

The registration fee is $5 per site visit. Colleges/universities also have the option to purchase prepaid ticket bundles (multiples of $25) for their students.

Testimonials

"Great way to get exposed to not only what real job opportunities are like, but how to go about achieving them."

"The EACE was super informative! It helped me learn more about a company and its culture and their work values. This experience helped me decide what I wanted to do with my professional career."

"This was a great opportunity that I was glad I took part in. There is nothing better than getting to learn new things about companies that you're interested in." - Junior, Widener University 

"The EACE Road Trips serve as a beneficial hybrid workshops that allow for networking opportunities, as well as obtaining information on possible career paths with involved companies." - Senior, Worcester State University

"An amazing experience, I finally got to see a possible career path and get a feel for the environment and hopefully future co-workers." - Sophomore, Saint Thomas Aquinas College

"I have been to three of these events since I started college, and I plan to continue attending these events all the way through to my senior year. It is a really great way to get to know a company without having the pressure of an interview. For me, it has helped me get a grasp about the things I want and the things I don't want in a company. Information like this is so valuable, especially as I get older and start to look for jobs. The EACE Road Trips Program is such a rewarding experience. I would recommend this program for college students at all stages: refining career interests, finding internships, and looking for jobs." - Sophomore, Mount Holyoke College
