Get a Job & Make It Your Own: A Presentation Seeking Students’ Comments and Discussion
Sponsored By University of Pennsylvania
Wednesday, Sept. 16 – 12:15-1:15pm
Greg Hempen, PhD, PE, RG
AEG Honorary Member, Past President & 2013–14 Jahns Distinguished Lecturer, Consulting Geophysicist, EcoBlast, LC
The talk seeks to gain students’ involvement and discussion via a PowerPoint presentation. Attendees are encouraged to interrupt the presentation to comment or inquire. The talk and response to inquiries attempt to provide the employer’s perspective, so the new professionals may assess how their job applications and interviews might be evaluated by prospective employers. The presentation also makes a few recommendations on how one’s career over time may be tailored to that individual’s goals. Students may change the direction or develop a concern particular to that audience or to a particular industry
or employment availability.
