Mentor Panel (5:30 Tuesday Evening)

The Idaho Chapter AFS Mentoring Committee is hosting a moderated panel discussion with professionals from several state and federal agencies, NGOs and tribes. Students and young professionals will hear about different career paths that professionals followed to reach their current position. Panelists will also field questions from students and young professionals about career development, graduate school, career planning, and other relevant topics. This event is right before the Student-Mentor mixer and a great way to break the ice or think of interesting topics to discuss later in the evening.

Student-Mentor Mixer (6:30 Tuesday Evening)

The Student-Mentor mixer is an informal mixer aimed at connecting students to professionals in the fisheries field who can help them on their career path. Attendees will get bingo cards to fill out by meeting students or professionals with different traits or career experiences on the bingo card. Completed cards will be entered in a raffle for great prizes, so bring your business cards and your game face!
