Career Conversations Luncheon

The Career Conversations Luncheon is held in preparation for the STEM career fair. A panel of successful, professional women answer questions about what their jobs are like and why they chose the fields they are in. All women in the Ira A. Fulton College of Engineering and Technology are invited to come and enjoy a delicious lunch while finding answers to questions about future career options.

Former panel members included Amanda Campbell from Xactware, Sunni Swain from UNIConnect, and Emily Evans who is an assistant professor in mathematics with extensive industry experience. Our lunch was sponsored by ExxonMobil and Dow Chemical. We appreciate their support!
