    We had a great conversation about finding a job and securing job opportunities during this week's Thursdays @ 3.  ​We had one question we weren't able to answer on the call so I wanted to share it here and the response from one of the panelists @Tony Lau

    Question: "What if a company did not advertise any volunteer position on their websites. How did you get in?" 

    Response: "My first full-time job was not advertised anywhere.  I met my future boss at a ASCE Hawaii Section dinner meeting where student members were allowed to attend at half-price.  He indicated that they were looking to replace someone who had just left their company.  Later that night, he offered me an opportunity to come to their office for an interview." - @Tony Lau
