Student Experiences:

Viterbi Trek was a great experience that taught me not only about the companies we visited but also more about myself.

Viterbi Trek was an amazing experience for me. I enjoyed developing a deeper perspective on each of the companies we visited, as well as the general tech industry, through tours, networking lunches, and talks with engineers and executives. I definitely have a better understanding of the type of career I want in the future. I also loved talking to Viterbi alumni at each company, which showed me how strong and supportive the Trojan family is. Viterbi Trek also brought me closer to my fellow students on the trip, and I made lots of new friends.

My biggest takeaway is the fact that everyone will have their own journey throughout their careers. It was pretty comforting to know that some people took meandering paths like me and that they were still able to create success for themselves that way. I loved hearing about their different experiences and knowing that their own passion and drive got them to where they are today.
