ASCE’s Career Discovery Series connects prospective civil engineers and individuals transitioning into a civil engineering career with professionals across five distinct career paths to learn about the work they do every day. During each session, panelists will share first-hand experiences from their career path with additional time for attendees to ask questions.
This session will be held on March 25 from 1-2 PM ET and will focus on exploring engineering careers in education . It will be followed by two more sessions exploring civil engineering careers in industry and construction. Sessions will be held on the fourth Thursday of each month from 1-2 PM ET until May 2021.
