Interested in exploring non-academic geoscience careers? Come and meet geoscientists from a variety of career fields, engage in a panel discussion, and learn tips and techniques for resume writing and interviews that apply to positions outside of academia. Participants will leave with a better idea of skills needed for certain fields, knowledge of how to gain experience necessary for those jobs, and will develop an action plan for future career pursuits. Time will also be spent reviewing application materials.
