EdgeGamer's Career Day!

With the endless variety of community members within EdgeGamers, we have the joy to have a VAST field of people who have been there and done that.
From people with Master degrees, engineers of many kinds, managers, grad students, people currently in college, and so on.

With all those people, we also have a wide ranging group of individuals within our community who are just starting their journey into the big world. Whether that be them in their Senior year of HS, in college, looking what to major in, curious about specific fields, etc.

This has been put together, to help those younger community members and assist them in gleaning from those within the community who have BEEN THERE, AND DONE THAT!

With my great pleasure, I am here to announce the first annual EdgeGamer's Career Day!


Career Day will be a 3 day event, that will have a variety of speakers with a wide range of experiences, and job titles. It will be structured in time slots, where you the community member can jump in and listen to a given speaker and ask them questions to their relative experiences and job fields.

With all that said, below is the time schedule with the speakers, their experiences, and things they are comfortable in speaking to.
Friday, November 18TH

Studied criminal justice in college; did the whole 4 year route; got into a military officer program while I studied; first tour was in Italy; absolutely loved it. Second tour I was stationed in a flight training base; got my civilian pilot license in 4 months, then eventually got picked up for flight school military side.

If anyone is looking to join and fly aviation, come talk to me; Air Force is NEEDING pilots right now. Massive shortage.
im downloading these pictures and sending them as a package to North Korea :D
