- Become a life-long learner
- Develop good leadership skills
- Connect with a mentor
- Think outside the box
- Maximize your personal talent and skills
- Take on challenges

Panelists included Errika Mallett, IE 1996, Joan Nelson, IM 1984, John Quinn, IE 1977, Ricardo Salgado, IE 1998, and Julio Villafane, IE 1985, along with moderator, Jane Snowdon, PhD IE 1994. The event was open to all ISyE students looking to learn more about career options within the industrial engineering field, as well as an opportunity to network with panel representatives and other advisory board members in attendance.
In addition to answering questions from students, the panel spoke about their career and work experiences, and encouraged the students to find a mentor. Several members on the panel serve as mentors in the Georgia Tech Mentor Jackets program.
