I just saw the email this morning
TAMARA ROBERSON

it was sent out yesterday morning

Zoom is a blessing and a curse I feel.
TAMARA ROBERSON
15:34
My professors tend to run over into the next class anyway, so there's no time between classes.
TAMARA ROBERSON
15:55
At least there's no walk time, it's just pretty instant.
TAMARA ROBERSON
16:40
Should we wait a bit more or start introductions?
TAMARA ROBERSON
16:58
oh okay. I thought it was 12.
Elisha Aguilera
17:09
Yep, usually 10 after
Todd Vanek
21:09
Thank you for your service Josh.
Joshua DiLuciano
21:18
Thanks :-)
Elisha Aguilera

I'll fire off first: If I don’t net an internship this summer, is their anything I should focus on over the Summer break, like personal projects, interview practice, or extra-curricular activities, et. cetera?
TAMARA ROBERSON
22:35
I am also concerned, I get a lot of automatic rejection emails without an interview. I'm a Junior, so it's like my last chance for an internship.
Elisha Aguilera
27:13
Thank you all very much.

Junior EE major / CompE minor

I am thinking about a Master's but I'd be a traitor and go over to UW so I could live in Seattle...
Elisha Aguilera
33:18
<Details Blurb> At present, I'm in my Junior year for a SE major / Math minor at WSU Everett. </Details Blurb>
Todd Vanek
36:12
What about an Engineering Management master's degree?
TAMARA ROBERSON
37:35
is it too much to work and do a Master's during evenings? I quit my job to go back to university but I have thought about UW-Bothell because they have evenings Master's degrees but I hear stretching out your Master's makes it hard to finish.

Many of our students do not feel prepared enough for their internships/jobs. What advice can you offer to them? (either to make them feel more confident or to prepare better)
Iris Jones | CptS
39:08
How has your career path differed from what you envisioned as an undergraduate? How much do you feel the opportunities you had steered what direction you took your career versus deciding you wanted to work in some area?
TAMARA ROBERSON
41:05
(I left retail management because I wanted some more technical knowledge in addition to soft skills but I wouldn't mind eventually taking a management career track)
TAMARA ROBERSON
43:26
I want to build cool stuff and get paid for it.
Joshua DiLuciano
45:30
Lots of folks do masters over as long as they need, and it works really well :-)
Iris Jones | CptS
48:23
Have you ever had to make a choice between working in a job or field where you felt you would have a bigger impact and a job or field that could lead to more personal opportunities or pays more? How did you find the right balance for you?
Joshua DiLuciano
57:46
we have those lateral moves
Linli Jia
58:21
I’m not sure whether it’s proper to ask this question. Have you ever felt tired of work, felt stressful of competitions and lost ambitions?
Venera Arnaoudova
01:05:59
Thank you all for the great discussion!
Iris Jones | CptS
01:06:05
Thank you!
Joshua DiLuciano

Ask yourself the question, "When am I at my best". If you can't be at your best at work or in your personal life, it may be time to figure out how you do what you love in some aspect.
Elisha Aguilera
01:06:09
Thank you all, appreciate the candid answers.
Sierra Pine
