Calling All Employers!

Are you interested in expanding  your employer brand and recruiting efforts to college students throughout the Northeast and  upper Mid-Atlantic states? 

Would you like the opportunity to showcase your organization to some of the region’s top college talent? 

The Road Trips to the Real World program gives students the opportunity to visit top employers like YOU to learn first-hand about a career field, network, and explore internship and entry-level opportunities. Hosting a student site visit is FREE and the perfect chance to boost your recruiting efforts.

Site visits typically include some of the following activities: tours, Q&A with current employees, presentations receptions and an overview of hiring practices. However, the structure of your site visit is completely up to you and what you think will best educate our membership about your opportunities. In the past, Google, HBO, Booz Allen Hamilton, Yelp, Facebook, Madison Square Garden, Boston Ballet and many other organizations have participated in the Road Trips to the Real World Program. View the 2020 prospective employer host flyer here.

Registration for the 2020 program is now open through October 4, 2019.
Site visits will take place January 6-17, 2020.

 

FAQ

Do employers need to follow a certain structure for the site visit?

How you set up the visit is completely up to you. Activities include:

  • Informal information session regarding internship/job opportunities available
  • On-site tour
  • Panels of previous interns, new hires, or supervisors with hiring needs

We ultimately trust the employer to have the freedom to plan and develop the visit in a way that our members will most benefit and learn about the opportunities available in your organization to take back to their campuses.

How long are these site visits?

Typically, site visits are two hours. The time frame can be flexible according to the employer’s needs. 

Are host organizations expected to provide a meal for the visitors?

Absolutely not. If you choose not to do so, we’ll be cognizant of the time frame in which we schedule the visit (either the morning prior to lunch or the afternoon after lunch).

Can the employer determine how many attendees they are able to accommodate?

Absolutely. The employer will be asked to determine how many people they are able to host, and registration for your visit will be capped at that number.

Will we have a list of visitors prior to the event and will we be able to obtain required forms for security clearance, if necessary?

Yes, a list of the visitors can be provided and an EACE Committee member will serve as your liaison. Visitors will complete any required forms that you need in advance. Our goal is to work with you.

Do I need to be an EACE member to host a site visit?

No. The employer hosts do not need to be EACE members.
