DescriptionWhat is a National Laboratory? Do they offer internships? What is scientific computing? How can I learn more about supercomputing? Do they employ non-U.S. Citizens? This is an interactive discussion and information session for those who are actively exploring and educating themselves about diverse career path options and looking for gems of opportunity in terms of internships (summer or other types), funding programs, and research or postdoc program opportunities. Presenters will discuss the importance of the student internship (and of including a broad set of internship experiences, if possible) in shaping a career path. The presenters will answer the “What is a National Laboratory? (and other) questions and discuss how a National Laboratory experience can provide unique exposure, training, perspective, and skill development to help shape career path and direction with perhaps unexpected and amazing results.
