Professional perspectives networking event: a successful career in climate and energy

On 18 November, Career Development at the Hertie School hosted the bi-annual Professional Perspectives Networking Event, in collaboration with the Hertie Energy and Environment Network and the Centre for Sustainability. The event was held over Zoom and featured twelve organizations focused on energy and climate to network and chat with students. 

Students had the opportunity to hear from consultancy firms, energy companies, German federal ministries and intergovernmental organizations. The representatives were able to introduce their organization and answer specific questions from students in private breakout rooms.  

We want to thank the representatives who attended the session for speaking with the Hertie community and to the students for engaging with the special guests.
