Student Mentoring Program

The 33rd USAEE/IAEE North American Conference will offer a special opportunity for students to engage directly with seasoned professionals in the major areas of energy economics so as to hear first-hand about real careers and hard-won experiences.

This event provides for informal mentoring opportunities between energy professionals and students who are contemplating which energy economics career path to pursue. However, this event is not intended to offer any direct entries into the jobs market, rather it aims to help students make better informed choices about career paths and to provide links with some of the subject matter mentors.

During an initial 1-1/2 hour period (7:30 - 9:00pm) following the Opening Reception on Sunday evening October 25 students can hear mini-presentations by mentors relating their lifelong professional experiences and lessons learned. Each mini-presentation will be followed by open Q&A and the sessions will be repeated up to 6 times so that students can hear a variety of individual experiences over the course of the evening. An hour of informal networking is available until 10:00pm. Any one-on-one follow-up after the occasion is entirely a matter for each student and individual mentor.
