This year, the Workshop for Student Chapter Leaders (WSCL) was held right here in Los Angeles. At only a couple miles away, the USC ASCE student chapter took the conference head-on.
Students were able to attend various seminars ranging from how to get results from a meeting to finding an internship. Furthermore, attendees were also given multiple opportunities to network with Younger Members, Regional Directors and other students as well. From focus sessions geared toward specific chapter problems to messages from the current president elect, Kristina Swallow, and future president elect nominees, there were few chances to catch a break.
In addition to the main events that the conference offered, there were additional opportunities to take advantage of such as the Dream Big Premiere and the LA YMF dinner on top of city hall.
Overall, this conference was a wonderful experience for networking with members from all around the country, and it was also an amazing event to gain knowledge on how to run your student chapter more efficiently.
On the evening of September 22, members of LA YMF (Los Angeles Younger Member Forum) and USC ASCE came together for a resume review and mock interview workshop.
There was an opportunity to question a panel of LA YMF members about their field as well as a segment for feedback and suggestions on how to curate a proper resume. Later, mock interviews were held in two separate rooms to further prepare students for the types of questions potentially asked in future interviews. Overall, this event provided great preparation for the upcoming Viterbi Career Fair in early October.
