     • The importance of knowing your value
     • A model for building an effective personal career brand

     • How to thrive in the post-COVID-19 economy

The webinar is derived from Higher Landing’s proprietary Career Transition and Transformation program, which has been used to help over 1,000 Albertans pivot their careers and ‘land higher’ since the oil & gas crisis hit Alberta in 2015.

This is a great opportunity to learn about the latest trends, meet industry professionals and academics, and brush elbows with fellow students.
Our committee is comprised of young geoscientists who work for a variety of roles in small to large companies in the energy industry. We meet on a regular basis to discuss how we can best encourage and support university students they navigate through the academic and into the professional world. We always welcome feedback on our programs, lectures and events.
