Important to the mission of MESA is to provide students with “real-world” career experiences. As part of the SRJC MESA Program, students are invited by members of MESA’s Local Industry Advisory Board to visit nearby STEM companies. Site visits provide students with opportunities to learn directly from professionals about current industry standards, practices, and daily work realities.
Guest speakers provided critical insights into career pathways. Each year MESA students report the value of hearing first-hand from professionals.
If you are a STEM professional interested and willing to share your experiences with a future STEM student community, consider contacting the SRJC MESA Program with a request to be a featured guest speaker.
