Part 1: Transitioning to the Professional World: What you Don’t Learn in the Academic Classroom
To view a recording of this webinar please visit https://naep2017-1.splashthat.com/

This webinar will focus on dynamics in the office for environmental professionals. A difference in work culture exists from what you experienced in the academic classroom and in other fields compared to the professional work environment. Navigating the work environment is a skill one develops over time and with experience. This skill set includes having the right attitude and being ready to receive advice. While the topics may include the benefits of completing internships and the larger concepts of a work ethic, the webinar will be broken down into work sectors (e.g., private, government, non-governmental organizations [NGOs]).  

Speakers: Ron Deverman, John Esson, Daniel Reed, Shannon Stewart
