Young industrial hygienists are entering the career with many great opportunities to make a positive difference in the lives of workers.  The problem they face is deciding what direction to go and how that direction will impact future career options.  While the various options are exciting and challenging, they may not be the right fit for everyone.  The speakers will give examples and practical tips on the culture, opportunities, benefits/drawbacks of their five organizations to help young hygienists make informed decisions about prospective career paths.  Panel members will include government enforcement, NASA, loss control, consulting, and industry.  Attendees will gain ideas on where to start their careers or where they want to go next and will also be given the opportunity to share success stories with students and early career professionals in attendance.
