Talking Trade at FIT: WITA on Career Pathways Panel

October 9 at 3:15 pm - 6:00 pm

The Washington International Trade Association (WITA) Academy, in partnership with FIT’s Department of International Trade and Marketing, presents a three-hour online event designed to teach FIT students about careers in international trade and business.

Students will gain insight from trade professionals, pose questions to policymakers, and learn about exciting career opportunities in international affairs, business, and trade. Students will come away with an understanding of the trade policy-making community, the role of its key players, and the opportunities for internships and careers available to them.

  • Session 1, 3:30–4:45 pm ET: will focus on career opportunities in the public sector
  • Session 2, 4:45–6 pm ET: will highlight private sector opportunities

Students that attended at least 50% of the sessions of the day will receive a free one-year membership to the Washington International Trade Association (WITA), a certificate of achievement, and access to attend WITA online policy discussions free of charge for one year.

For questions about the event, please contact the WITA staff at events@wita.org.

This event is for the FIT community only; attend virtually or in person; registration is required with an FIT email address.
