A group of Hult San Francisco students took a trip to the Yahoo! headquarters in Sunnyvale this week for a special company visit featuring a recruiting presentation and private tour - and even breakfast.
Hult's Corporate Relations, North America team sponsored the event, one of their many "Tech Treks," choosing 25 students (out of 80 applicants) to visit the Silicon Valley staple on June 4.
The day started with breakfast in the company's famed URL's Cafe, followed by a Yahoo! job recruiting presentation and Q&A session with the U.S. university recruiters - and a Skype presentation from recruiters at Yahoo! India. The Hult group rounded out its visit with a tour of the campus.
The Yahoo! event was not only an exciting half-day outing to a high-profile Bay Area company, but an opportunity to plant a job search seed in the minds of the students in attendance. Now, the Corporate Relations and Career Services departments will work with those who went to identify potential positions for themselves at Yahoo! and make a plan for getting a foot in the door.
