Session 4: Get Tips from a Guide (Networking Panel)
Tuesday August 2 4:30-6:00
You've planned your journey, packed your bags, and bought your tickets. Before you disembark on your own, here's a chance to learn from seasoned "travelers". Our diverse panel of professionals will share their experiences and advice from the working world, as well as answer your questions. Some of these guests began their careers with one destination in mind, but discovered that changing course can be a valuable option.
