A Career Trek To California

An integral part of the graduate school experience is participating in professional development opportunities. Across our three campuses, Johns Hopkins SAIS students participate in professional development courses, lunch discussions, and informational interviews, and career treks offered by the Office of Global Careers.

Just this week, during spring break, a group of 18 students made their way to California to participate in a series of company visits and alumni networking receptions. Day one of the trip comprised of visits to NextEra Energy, Sustainable Power Group, and SunRun. On day two, the students visited Bloomberg New Energy Finance, California Public Utilities Commission, and Google. On both days, the group was hosted by alumni who currently work in the field.

The Energy & Environment Career Club and Global Career Services organizes this career trek to San Francisco each year, focusing specifically on the renewables sector with an emphasis on solar.
