The Career Discovery Series is a program consisting of various career panels, which aim to educate students on the different career possibilities that they might consider. Panels are held during winter quarter and are comprised of UCI alumni and community members from various industries. Each panelist will discuss their current position, career path, and any tips and hints for students wanting to navigate into that career field. A time for questions and answers will follow where you can learn even more. This is a great opportunity for UCI students to learn from successful professionals who have “walked in their shoes” and can provide sage advice.
