By Jeff Braun, P.E. I had the opportunity to participate as part of industry panels for two of our Branch’s student chapters over the past couple of weeks, where we discussed how students can best position themselves for internships and career opportunities. We discussed job search resources, developing a personal brand, networking, resume hints, and interviewing skills. I was very impressed with the honesty students showed when sharing concerns and fears, and their motivation to invest the time and effort to best position themselves for their career. The conversations between the attendees and panel members were inspiring, and led me to think back to my job search experiences. I recall one of the interviews involved writing a short one-page response to a comment/question of my choosing from a list of options. One of the questions jumped out to me right away: “Do you believe in Luck?”
