As the workplace becomes globally and virtually distributed, engineers at all stages of their career are encountering new cultures, environments and challenges while navigating long-distance collaborations; online networking; and cross-boundary relationship-building. This workshop is focused on helping engineers learn the skills required to succeed in this changing platform.
Building on a successful and hugely popular Early Career Forum in 2009, this event will be held in an innovative interactive format that blends lectures and open-ended interviews, providing participants with the opportunity to collectively learn from industry leaders and trend-setters. Invited guests include technical leaders from Fortune 500 companies, start-up entrepreneurs, executive coaches, and early career engineers. Example topics of discussion will include the journey from engineer to manager to leader; anticipating technology inflections and timing your career moves accordingly; how to 'brand' oneself and network in an online world; transitioning from college or employment to starting your own business; and strategies for successful engagement and innovation within globally distributed teams.
Individuals may ATTEND ONLINE GLOBALLY or IN-PERSON at one of two locations:
- University of Texas in Austin, TX
- San Jose State University in San Jose, CA
NOTE THAT ALL TIMES STATED ARE PACIFIC TIMES.
Event participants will receive pre-event information packets containing specific details for the location selected. For more information, visit the ASME SCVS Early Career Forum program flyer at http://sections.asme.org/scvs/ or contact the registrar.
