3rd Annual Student Industry Night Recap

On the evening of March 7, Washington ITE brought back the Student Industry Night after a two-year pandemic hiatus. The event was held at Gonzaga University in Spokane and was spearheaded by the section’s student activities committee, past and present section presidents, and the Gonzaga ITE student chapter. The event was targeted to students from Gonzaga University, University of Idaho, Eastern Washington University, Spokane Colleges, and Washington State University and featured 8 local employers (Horrocks, Kittelson and Associates, Parametrix, City of Spokane, TranspoGroup, WSDOT, Whipple Consulting Engineers, and WSP – though Covid caused one to miss the event) with booths full of industry information, job and internship opportunities, and giveaways. The event also served as a networking for professionals on the east side of the state and was a nice return to in person events, with many reconnections and new connections made. One lesson learned was to not compete with a Gonzaga men’s basketball game for attendance; though with a lower student turnout, those who did attend were offered more face time with employers and personalized round table discussions to hear about the experiences of the professionals and get career advice. Thanks to our planned panelists Monica Harwood Duncan, McKenna Milacek, Inga Note; and our planning committee Rhonda Young, Jeanne Acutanza, Darcy Akers, Ryan Peterson, Marissa Milam, Kallyse Crawford, and Tyler Wong.
