“Our Torero Trek program provides current undergraduate students with exceptional opportunities to connect with industry professionals,” said Robin Darmon, director of USD’s Career Development Center. “We also ensure participants meet Torero alumni within the organization who are able to share their experiences with the students. Our alumni serve as invaluable resources for current students looking to start their careers,” added Darmon.
Darmon added, “Through the Torero Trek program, students are able to visit excellent companies, both near and far, and meet with alumni to expand their vision of what careers can look like post-USD. Torero Treks are one of the best ways to experience potential career paths and create new in-roads into a wonderful array of companies.”
