Earlier this year, we brought you an episode about Roadtrip Nation – an initiative the SEMI Foundation sponsored to raise awareness among recent STEM graduates about opportunities in the semiconductor industry. We interviewed SEMI Foundation’s Shari Liss, to get all the details. You can listen to the episode here.
In this follow-up episode, we’re speaking with TEL’s Katy Crist, who heads up the company’s workforce development initiative, and Tara Greig, an intern at TEL who was selected as one of the lucky candidates who participated in this year’s Roadtrip Nation.
Katy talks about the importance of the Roadtrip Nation project to SEMI’s image and awareness campaign about the semiconductor industry as a great career path. She also talks about TEL’s involvement.
Two-thirds of the way through the experience, Tara shares some highlights of her experience and the journey from applying to the program through the actual three-week adventure, the people she met, the connections and relationships she made, and also provides tips for future applicants who might want to take advantage of this amazing program.
Roadtrip Nation is a nonprofit organization that humanizes career exploration through storytelling and empowers individuals to connect their interests to fulfilling lives and careers.
