Abstract: During this panel I will be introducing various network professionals from the NANOG Community. Each will provide a brief overview of their career path, highlighting any specific education choices or job opportunities which led them to where they are now.

The job market in this industry is very different now than when we were starting out, as we helped shape the Internet industry during our time. We've spoken about bringing in the next generation, and that it's daunting for them and hard to find that first griphold to get started. The purpose of the panel is to help newcomers into the industry understand the various career trajectories, hopefully giving them insight into how they should plan their own growth as a network operator, engineer, or related professional.
