A new event at this years Annual Meeting was the AAPG/SEG Student Expo Committees Student Career Seminar. This Seminar featured a presentation from Phillip Sims from The Excellence Connection titled, "$elling yourself for $uccess".
A question and answer session allowed attendees to glean information from a panel of new hires into the petroleum industry as well as long time professionals. Panel members, many of whom had attended past AAPG/SEG Student Expos, shared their experiences and useful tips. Students were presented with the opportunity to ask, the basic questions such as, "what works? What doesnt?", in the pursuit of a career in the petroleum Industry.
Feedback was positive from the students that attended the pizza lunch presentation and many expressed a desire to see the program continue.
