Over the course of an hour we will explore the careers of three highways and transportation professionals.

The event will showcase the many routes and options available for a career in the Highways and Transportation sector, the challenges those in the sector may face in the future and inspire younger professionals in their own career.
This event is primarily for emerging professionals (in the first 10 or so years of their career), although this event will be insightful and interesting for anyone looking to progress in their career and considering the best way to do so.
