What You Missed at the Annual Alumni Industry Panel

Students and alumni gathered on Thursday, November 4, 2011 to hear five Embry-Riddle alums talk about their respective careers and dole out valuable advice for those seeking work in the industry. If you were one of the smart ones who attended, you know how beneficial the event was for job and internship seekers.

Alumni panelists answered questions from both the audience and moderator, Lisa Kollar. After  the 90-minute long panel event, students, alumni, Career Services staff, and the panelists congregated in the COB Atrium to network and talk about job and internship opportunities. Job seekers that attended had the chance to stand out and get valuable facetime with prospective employers.

Panelists included:  

All five panelists did an excellent job of conveying to students and alumni the importance of completing an internship, the value of networking as part of the job search, and the fact that one’s career path may take many turns. They spoke of the Embry-Riddle community and how tight bonds are out in industry. Many said their companies regarded Embry-Riddle candidates as a preferred choice when making hiring decisions. They shared personal insights into their own experiences and offered sage advice to college students embarking on a career in the industry.
