2022 – NC Department of Environmental Quality’s Students@Work Career Panel

PROVIDED BY: North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality

Description

The NC Department of Environmental Quality's (NCDEQ) Office of Environmental Education will host a virtual career panel for students interested in STEM fields.  This career panel will support Students@Work efforts to help local students become aware of potential careers and the necessary skillsets for those careers.

Students who participate in NCDEQ's Career Panel will learn firsthand about STEM careers available in the state's lead stewardship agency for protecting North Carolina's environmental resources. During the NCDEQ career panel, students will have the opportunity to talk with professionals from different divisions in NCDEQ.

Panel members will share how they became interested in their career, their career path, and some of the challenges while pursuing their degrees in college. They will advise students on connecting their passions and interests with potential careers and how students can begin to develop the qualifications necessary for working in STEM fields through internships, job shadowing, and other opportunities.
