Join the Student Caucus for the fourth annual offering of EMbark Career and Professional Day on Sunday, November 15th. EMbark starts at 12:00 pm and will end in time for the Pre-Welcome Meet and Greet hosted by the IAEM Conference Committee.
EMbark is the introduction to your IAEM Conference! EMbark is designed for IAEM's diverse student and new professional members. Whether you're a student, scholar, new practitioner – or all three – you'll find something of value. EMbark brings you interesting speakers, beneficial topics and the opportunity to learn more about the emergency management field. EMbark aims to give you information on navigating academics and practice to successfully transition to the workplace, including networking, identifying mentors and more.
EMbark will also feature the third annual Rapid Fire Talks! Based on TED Talks, these five-minute long talks are on your specific topic of interest (research/job/interview practice/etc.). Rapid Fire Talks is your elevator pitch about you and your topic! Take this opportunity to build and enhance your public speaking skills and get valuable feedback. To sign-up, email Jody Hodge (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Sarah Miller (email@example.com).
