Career Forum Event Follow Up: On Thursday, February 2, we hosted 11 professionals from local companies to share their experience and expertise with our students in our first annual Career Forum event.
We wanted to share the questions that our moderators used and encourage you to share your own answers and experiences with your students at home. Students often know where their parents work, but seem to know less about what their day-to-day professional experience is like.
Q&A Questions List:
Please share your career journey to your current role, including your education, certifications & experience.
What does a typical day look like for you in your current role?
Tell us about a work project that was especially enjoyable to work on.
What skill sets or industry certifications would you recommend for someone interested in your field?
How do you see the computer science (or biotech) industry impact seemingly unrelated industries?
What is the most challenging part of your work?
How often are you working on collaborative projects? What does that look like in your organization?
What general career advice would you share with your high school self, if you could?
