AEM Department Hosts Annual Career Panel
On Oct. 30, 2019, AEM students had the opportunity to listen to professionals in the aerospace field and participate in an informal networking session at the AEM Career Panel. The event began with a panel discussion called, “Insights on Successful Careers in Aerospace,” where students gained valuable advice about careers skills from professionals in the aerospace field. This year's panelists included: Lisa Graham, from Collins Aerospace; Jason Graham, from Collins Aerospace; Jan Fransen, a research Librarian at UMN; and Karim Alame, a Graduate Student at UMN. Professor John Weyraunch served as the panel’s moderator. Following the event, a reception was held and students were encouraged to network with the panelists.
This annual event allows students to hear from industry professionals, ask insightful questions about working in the field, and gain valuable career advice, such as how to job search effectively and how to break through in the aerospace field. On behalf of the AEM department, thank you to the panelists and volunteers who helped make this year’s career panel successful.
