Join the AFCEA Emerging Professionals in the Intelligence Community (EPIC) Committee for an evening that will provide an opportunity for students, post-docs, and other young professionals to gain a better understanding of the opportunities and roles available to them within the Intelligence Community.

Panelists from EPIC will provide personal accounts, covering their background, route into the IC, current role within the IC, and thoughts on opportunities for recent graduates. They will spend the last half of the webinar answering questions submitted by participants. At the end of the event participants will have the opportunity to join breakout sessions with specific panelists and delve deeper into topics of interest.
