Career Prospects in the Fiber Optics Industry Discussion and Networking Event at OFC

When: Monday, 4 March 2019, 12:30 - 14:00

Where: Room 14A, Mezzanine Level, San Diego Convention Center

Members of the OSA Fiber Optics Technology Technical Group are invited to join us for our Career Prospects in the Fiber Optics Industry Discussion and Networking Event that will be taking place at OFC. This event will bring together a panel of carefully selected experienced professionals from the fiber optics industry with early career professionals and research students.

We hope our event will give young professionals the opportunity to hear about the career paths of the members of the panel, lessons they have learned and the avenues offered to them by their degrees. There will be a brief presentation of the panel members, followed by small-group discussions that will offer a chance to debate on technology trends, the prospects of the fiber optics industry, the added value of graduate studies in fiber optics and the career perspectives they might offer. We also hope our event will be a great networking opportunity bringing together the bright young professionals of our technical group with some widely recognizable names in our field.

If you will be able to join us for the Career Prospects in the Fiber Optics Industry Discussion and Networking Event on Monday, 4 March, please RSVP to let us know. We hope to see you there!
