SUMMARY: SCEC’s Office of Experiential Learning and Career Advancement (ELCA) is hosting its 6th Annual Transitions Program Breakfast Club Meetup! This year’s theme is Navigating Post-Pandemic Networking. The challenges over the last two years have impacted opportunities for making professional connections. Post-pandemic networking has changed significantly and there is uncertainty about how to re-emerge successfully. Join fellow students and early-career peers and learn from SCEC’s senior scientists from a range of fields and sectors who will share their thoughts on how to manage post-pandemic networking.

The goal of these meetups is to provide a platform for early career attendees to connect with mentors for the purpose of discussing pathways in earthquake science careers. These networking opportunities are intended for anyone starting, pursuing, building, or transitioning into an earthquake science career.
