The workshops at the Truckee Tahoe Airport never disappoint!
Last night's workshop featured outstanding speakers, who shared their career journeys, passion for their careers, and sound advice. Special thanks go to:
- Kevin Smith - Airport Manager for the Truckee Tahoe Airport
- Brian Willson - Engineering Officer with the US Coast Guard
- Jessica Fay - President of Sierra Aero
These leaders were simply amazing!
In addition to the great presentations, we participated in conversations about skills identification and resume writing. It's never easy to identify all of our skills, so we spend a fair amount of time discussing the many characteristics we seek in ourselves, friends, and teammates, then compared them to skills desired by employers. Interestingly, students recognized that they're basically the same! We then discussed ways to articulate those skills, as well as experiences, education, and more onto resumes.
We're incredibly thankful to Sierra Aero and the Martis Camp Community Foundation for supporting our Truckee Tahoe career mentoring workshops!
