Engineering and IT Employers to Connect with at the Don’t Fear Your Career Exploration Event!

The exploring cluster is excited to host our first Virtual Don’t Fear Your Career Industry Exploration Event on Wednesday, Oct. 28 at 5:30pm-6:30pm! You will have the opportunity to connect virtually with alumni in a variety of industries to learn about their roles, path to careers, and gain advice that will help you enhance your career development!

This event will be held on the Remo platform for interactive roundtable discussions.

If you’re interested in learning more about what to expect in the Engineering and IT industry, we’d recommend connecting with the following alum!

Alison Stiel (Software Engineer at Comcast NBCUniversal)

Gillian Martin (Associate Software Engineer at Capital One)

Ashlee Yilmaz (Technical Support Engineer at Zendesk)

Bonus Tips:

After you connect with alumni, follow up with them on LinkedIn to keep the conversation going and expand your network.  If you didn’t have time to ask them all the questions you wanted to ask, think about following up requesting an informational interview.  You can learn more about conducting informational interviews in our Career Guide.


You can also schedule a Zoom appointment with a career consultant in hireBING if you need additional help preparing for the event!
