How to Get Hired - Panel Discussion

  • February 09, 2021
  • 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
  • Zoom Meeting


  • Zoom link will be provided upon registration.

Registration is closed

An objective of the PSHFES is to support professionals and students in our region. Based on a request from the Oregon State University Student HFES Chapter, we have developed a 1.5 hour web-based meeting to share tips and insights for “job hunting”.  We will rely on the expertise of Cary Calkins, Employer Engagement Broker with the Seattle Housing Authority and Jaime Harmon, graduate student at Embry-Riddle to start off the meeting, then wrap up with input from our PSHFES Executive Team in addition to Q&A. Whether you are a grad student, new grad or seasoned professional, there is always something to learn. Please plan to join us for a panel discussion on "How to Get Hired" on Tuesday February 9th, 2020 from 4:30pm-6pm. 

Zoom meeting login information is enclosed in registration confirmation.

Jaime Harmon

Jaime Harmon is a Systems Engineer currently pursuing a master’s degree in Human Factors at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, FL. Jamie's message is: instead of making humans fit humans into a system, make a system to fit humans. Jaime notes that Flight is her gravity, so she was naturally drawn to the aviation field. This past summer, Jaime (virtually) interned at Boeing as an ergonomics intern and was involved with exoskeleton projects along with other ergonomics solutions that position workers to go home better. Her professional end goal is to work in consulting, particularly challenges around project management and/or Human Factors related issues.
