Los Angeles County Department of Public Works presented during CSULB SWE’s general body meeting in February 18, 2015. Guest speaker Pamela Manning hosted an Interview Tips Workshop and interacted with the students throughout the meeting. She spoke from personal experience about how to prepare before, during and after an interview. She also shared her career success story and how she moved up in her field; she inspired attendees to be ambitious yet professional when pursuing career goals.
To interact with students and create a more hands-on environment, Manning randomly picked attending members during the meeting and gave them interviewquestions to respond to on the spot. Afterwards, she gave “graded” the selected students responses. This workshop was a success and provided students with useful tips. Many thanks to Pamela Manning and LA County Department of Public Works for presenting. And shoutout to Ivan Perez who is a CSULB graduate and Public Works employee that allowed for this professional connection.
