Get a Job and Make it Your Own Student and Young Professional Session

Friday, September 16 from 10:20am-12:00pm in Sunset 2 Meeting Room

AEG Honorary Member, Past President & 2013–14 Jahns’ 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. Three areas (Networking & Credentials, Acquiring a Job, & Career Development) are developed to touch on many concepts, chiefly to gain the comments, questions and discussions of students’ concerns. 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.

Student Poster Competition

Students have submitted poster abstracts that will be presented at the meeting. All attendees will be able to vote for their favorite student poster using the mobile app. Prizes will be awarded for First Place ($200), Second Place ($100), and Third Place ($50) based on the attendee's votes. Winners will be announced at the poster reception on Thursday, Sept. 15, from 5:00-6:30pm.
