This artifact is from a Careers in Sustainability panel I attended on November 4th. I chose this event to signify one of the professional development experiences I had this year, as it allowed me to network with people in an industry I’ve been curious about exploring. I got to meet and hear from professionals in different areas of the environmental field, such as an architect/urban design planner, someone who worked in water treatment systems, and another who worked for the company Greenlots. The person who worked for Greenlots majored in EEDS at OSU and eventually worked his way into a role called Sales Engineering, a hybrid of sales and engineering that I didn’t know existed. He was really passionate about his job because he said he gave engineers a voice for their ideas but also got to utilize his sales and marketing skills. There were a lot of technical terms he used regarding clean energy and e-mobility but I could tell that he loved his job and that it was really meaningful. This experience was important to me because it opened my eyes to the different careers I could go into in the sustainability industry, but also learn that jobs exist out there that are a crossroads between business and sustainability. In the future, I want to attend more events like this that broaden my awareness of sustainability so that I can find a career path that combines both my interests in business and sustainability.
Hi! My name is Lisa Lin and I am a Business student specializing in Operations Management at OSU. I come from Dublin, Ohio, and love to read, run, play violin, and make art. Before college, I was a part of the Columbus Symphony Youth Orchestras for six years, fiddled with my school group all throughout high school, and stayed active and developed close bonds with my teammates through cross country and track.
In college, I hope to complement my major by pursuing my passions in environmental sustainability and fashion. So far, I have joined Net Impact, Business of Retail Association, and Buckeye Operations Management Society here at OSU to try to further my interests. Additionally, as a part of Business Scholars, I hope to advance my professional career and develop meaningful connections before venturing into the business world. I also hope to broaden my horizons by studying abroad at Peking University next year, trying new things outside of my comfort zone, and giving back to the community by engaging in more service commitments. I am excited for my next three years at OSU and can’t wait to see what else is in store!
