WGI’s Marissa Wyrick Speaks During STEMExplore “Virtual Career Connection with a Civil Engineer”
WGI’s Marissa Wyrick was recently featured in a Virtual Career Connection with EarthEcho International and STEMExplore!
EarthEcho International highlights relatable voices and exciting life experiences to make careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) come alive for middle school and high school students.
In this virtual “career connection” conducted through YouTube Live, students from across the country were able to learn about Marissa’s path into engineering. She discussed how her passions led her to discover her career, engineering as a career in general, educate the student’s on various types of engineering, talk about the day-to-day tasks as an engineer, and the steps to take to become a professional in this area. Students were also able to ask Marissa questions about her experiences, education, and career.
Marissa shared her experiences and challenges, such as being a female in a male-dominated industry, ways to handle failure and keep focused on your goals, and how mentors can be a valuable resource to have along the way. She also discusses the various organizations that have helped her throughout her journey, including the Society of Women Engineers.
