What's a Career Shuttle?
Career Shuttles are group site visits to employers in the greater Washington
DC area.  A chartered UMD bus takes students to companies, non-profit
organizations, government agencies, studios, and other places of employment
typically not represented in on-campus career fairs. Visits include site
tours, conversations with alumni working in the organization, and in-depth
information about internship or entry-level hiring.

Why should I attend a Career Shuttle?
Career Shuttles are great for students of all academic levels who are still
exploring their career options, and for students who are interested in
learning about a specific industry or company. It allows students to get
inside knowledge about the day-to-day tasks within a company, learn about
their hiring practices, and allows students to network with employers.

What will we do at MDA?
