On Thursday evening, 8 November, the department held its first ever Alumni Panel discussion. The gathering included Earth science graduate and undergraduate students, alumni from the HRM, and our guest panelists (pictured from left to right) Scott Swinden, Jacquie Stevenson, Emmaline Atherton and Billy Garrison. The discussion was moderated by emeritus professor Becky Jamieson, and thanks to Jocelyn Adams (at the mike), the Faculty of Science alumni affairs officer, for organising.
Students and alumni got to hear about the diverse career paths of the panelists, as well as got tips on how best to land your dream job.
In addition to input from the panelists, we also got to hear from Dal alumni Mike Parsons (GSC Atlantic), who provided further insights on how to be successful in your career.
After the formal question and answer period, students and alumni got a chance to socialze, and practice their networking skills.
