On Tuesday May 16th, ASCE hosted a lunchtime panel event for our younger members at the VDOT conference rooms in downtown Richmond. The panel consisted of senior level engineers, providing younger engineers the opportunity to ask the panelists about their career background, work/life balance, and any advice they have to offer. It was great to hear the panelists’ feedback! Key points of advice included: always seize challenging opportunities, diversify your work experience, learn to ask questions and when to listen, and to constantly develop your soft skills.

We were grateful to have Ed Drahos (Schnabel Engineering), Chris Kiefer (Timmons), Prasad Nallapaneni (VDOT), and John Riley (JMT) on our panel!  Their sound advice and open minds helped provide a successful event.
