Careerapalooza to offer a glimpse at career mobility within the Labs

Sandia has long billed itself to potential hires as a place where you can have multiple careers without ever leaving the Labs.

Now Sandia is reminding current employees of its brand promise through Careerapalooza, a career exploration event to be held June 21-24. The event will feature in-person and virtual events designed to better acquaint staff with opportunities for internal career mobility, as well as presentations and panel discussions on the skills and tools that will help them advance throughout their career: résumé writing, interviewing, mentoring and more.

“Internal mobility is more than just finding someone who is already on roll to fill a job opening,” said Chief Human Resources Officer Brian Carter. “It also gives existing employees the opportunity to improve their skills, develop new ones and remain excited and engaged in their work and in Sandia.

“I encourage all Sandians from every division, whether they’re relatively new or have been here a while, to participate in Careerapalooza to learn more about the many career paths available and how their career interests align,” he said.

See the preliminary schedule of events here and on the Careerapalooza website. Topics are subject to change. Watch for additional announcements in Sandia Daily News.
