Transitioning from University to a Job in the Space Sector
Space is a highly interesting field, but finding a first job in the space industry is not always easy.  The current members of the Engineer Development Program of the Canadian Space Agency discuss their transitions from university students interested in space to employees working in the space domain.  They discuss the strategic decisions one can take at the undergraduate level, the need to acquire soft skills (including interviewing skills) and the ways to do so, the value of a master degree including how to carefully pick a program and a supervisor, and finally, life as an employee in the space sector.
