Carson Brown, CSPG speaker
Students at Acadia welcomed Carson Brown, CSPG University Outreach Speaker to the department on 5 November. His talk, "Career Advice from a young geoscientist in the petroleum industry" provided many tips for graduates from the E&ES department, seeking employment in the energy field.
His discussion focused on the current state of the Canadian oil and gas industry, setting the stage for advice on what students can expect from a career in oil and gas and how best to market themselves to potential employers. He provided examples of advances in digital computing and the future of data analytics and moves to implement the opportunities provided by them to drive down costs.
At the conclusion of his talk, Garrett Velkjar presented him with a gift from Acadia.
