As a graduating student, emerging or even mid-career professional, it may seem career options are very limited and hard to navigate finding the right fit. The Career Roundtable is an opportunity to meet professionals working in various aspects in the field of landscape architecture, many doing non-conventional work that one may not associate as a potential career path. The event will offer the opportunity for intimate discussions on entering and navigating the field from many different perspectives. Participants can explore the different conversations happening simultaneously. The panelists will be organized into 5 groups based on their area of work – Public Sector, Private Sector, Business & Sales, Not for Profit Organization and Academia.
