The panel will offer advice for young professionals looking to enter or advance within the space industry, drawing from the personal experiences of senior leaders in the field. The discussion will focus on creative ways to gain insight and experience, while learning how to identify opportunities for advancement.

Specific questions will be posed to each panellist relevant to their background in the space sector.
Questions posed to the panellists include:

  • In your experience what are the benefits of pursing an entry-level job at a space company vs. a more specialized role in an unrelated field to gain experience that I can later transfer into the space sector?
  • Apart from skills related to the job, what characteristics do you think prospective employers look for in candidates?
  • How do I find and keep a mentor/mentee relationship and when is it okay to “mentor up”?
