Alumni visit the LRCAlumni Help Prepare LRC Students for Job Market

Two LRC alumni recently returned to speak to current students about the structure of the lighting industry and how to navigate the job-searching process. Kelly Seeger, an associate with ICF International and current IES NYC chapter president, and  Peping Dee, principal in his own fixture design company called Inform Lightworks, spent a Saturday outlining the lighting industry “food chain” and discussing job opportunities based on interests and industry needs. There was an in-depth question-and-answer period and, for those interested, Ms. Seeger and Mr. Dee also provided feedback on the strength and appearance of the students’ resumes.
