About the Event

Welcome to PetroLMI’s Career Exploration Forum: The Future of Working in Energy.

Join us for this highly interactive event featuring:

And the best part about this FREE event — it’s virtual! You can experience it all from the comfort of your home or office!

The goal is to help you understand where the short-, medium- and long-term opportunities are so you can make informed decisions about how, where and when to pivot your career.

Throughout the two-day event you’ll hear from experts on how the energy industry is evolving, where the growth opportunities are, the supports available to assist you, and how to set yourself up for an effective career transition. You’ll also hear from people who have successfully pivoted their careers and have a chance to ask them what worked (and what didn’t work!).
