This workshop is targeted at current engineering students, but is also being advertised to PEY students (on a 12–16 month internship) and new graduates (1–3 years of work experience) to create an atmosphere where diverse perspectives can be shared.
The Workshop will aim to help participants answer the following questions:
- How will you successfully navigate your new work-role and environment?
- How will you get the most value out of the work experience while adding the most value to your employer?
- Where will this experience take you next?
There will be a focus on all participants drawing from their personal experience to contribute to discussions, as well as generating ideas and setting personal goals to address the above questions for their own work situations. All participants will have the chance to interact with and learn from people from other companies. In addition to being general participants, junior engineers will have an opportunity to share their perspective through a mentoring session.
