FESinDC Basics

How are employers selected for FESinDC?

ALL F&ES students will be invited to provide top choices of employers to visit in Washington, DC through a Google spreadsheet created by CDO.

Selections are compiled and ranked to identify the top 25 employers. 

Student Interest Groups are encouraged to work with CDO to organize a visit to an employer of special interest to group members that may not be among the top 25.

Who pays for travel and accommodations?
Students are responsible for self financing personal travel, lodging and meals. Funding is not provided by F&ES or CDO.

Why visit employers on site?

Visiting with employers on site is way for students to learn firsthand about a specific work environment. It is an opportunity to step inside a headquarters, visit workplaces, and network with alumni and employers. Site visits organized by CDO in collaboration with employer hosts may consist of presentations with Q&A session, tours, or panel presentations.
