Why host a regional career program in Washington, DC?

Washington, DC is home to approximately 650 F&ES alumni--our largest alumni concentration. The trip provides  students an opportunity to meet a large number of alumni and employers in a two day period.

FESinDC also provides an unparalleled opportunity to explore the landscape of environmental work in the DC area and around the world.

Who attends FESinDC?

FESinDC is open to all current first-year and returning F&ES graduate students. CDO staff members accompany students at employer visits.

I can’t recommend FESinDC highly enough to next year’s class. The social and environmental challenges we face collectively could not be in better hands than with F&ES Alumni. Thank you for making it happen!

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 the trek?

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.
