Virtual Local Section: Go for the Gold Medal in your Chemical Engineering Career

Virtual Local Section Webinar
Originally delivered Aug 23, 2012

As Young Professional, you have already achieved success in completing the most challenging undergraduate program at most universities as you begin your career as chemical engineers.  You have reached scholastic heights that most others have not experienced or accomplished, but how can you translate your success from school into your career?  Now you are faced with the challenge of achieving success in a more challenging venue - the real world.  

Many chemical engineers can get bogged down in the trenches of their daily work tasks that limit their abilities during the first 5-10 years of their careers.  Learn how to achieve a Gold Medal in your chemical engineering career by making smart choices about your professional development early on.  By setting the right goals along with implementing a good professional development program, the sky is the limit in your career. Learn how to set the proper goals and motivate yourself beyond your current job duties and co-workers to become a shining star in your profession.

I will be providing a 'workout plan' for the important first 5-10 years of your careers along with goal setting skills.  I'll be discussing various options such as getting your PE license vs. a Masters or PhD degree.   Then I'll help you pick your 'best event' - your 'passion' in chemical engineering.  With your focus and dedication becoming skilled in your area of passion, then you'll start making major contributions to your company and the industry - a Gold Medal performance!
