WEBINAR: Uncovering a Hidden Gem: Exploring Careers at Los Alamos National Laboratory

November 18, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

This topic is best suited for military women in career transition who possess at least a BS/BA degree. However, all are welcome to attend.

*Please note, serious applicants must be willing to relocate to the beautiful Northern New Mexico area. Remote opportunities are rare, and consist of being within a two-hour radius of the lab with the ability to get called in on-site when necessary. Attracting world-class talent to the LANL is a top priority. Top candidates must often consider the employment needs of a spouse or other family member before choosing to work in Los Alamos, therefore spouses and significant others are also invited to attend this webinar.

This webinar will help you discover:
1. An overview of Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and their guiding beliefs and diversity practices that fuel an innovative, agile and principled workforce where employees thrive academically, professionally and personally.
2. The wide-variety (and diversity of careers) available at the Los Alamos National Laboratory.
3. The experiences of military leaders now working at LANL and their advice, lessons-learned and tips for navigating the application and interview process.
4. Onboarding programs and initiatives that provide employees with resources that foster success, provide professional development opportunities, and shared support across the Laboratory.
5. LANL’s innovative and comprehensive benefits that allow employees to maintain a healthy work-life balance (to include alternate work schedules and state-of-the-art privacy pods for nursing mothers located throughout the LANL complex).
6. The advantages of living in Northern New Mexico, which is lauded for its high quality of life, exceptional schools, and vibrant communities.

Participants of the eMentor Webinar Series have the opportunity to submit their profiles into the Professional Profile Directory (PPD). The Professional Profile Directory features the highly sought-after skills, talents and leadership competencies of current and former military officer women, senior enlisted women and degreed military spouses in career transition. Military men joining this webinar are also welcome to submit their profiles.

This directory will be shared with AcademyWomen and eMentor partners who may be able to facilitate hiring, a group that includes a wide array of top-caliber corporate, nonprofit and government entities. The PPD is an optional resource if you are interested in seeking new career opportunities.

About LANL
Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) has a proud history of almost 80 years of science and innovation to protect the nation. Most may know LANL as the Lab initiated in 1943, a few years after the start of World War II, for the single purpose of designing and building an atomic bomb. It took just 27 months. On July 16, 1945, the world’s first atomic bomb was detonated 200 miles south of Los Alamos.

But did you know that today, different research programs at the Lab directly and indirectly support and maintain the safety, security and reliability of the nation’s nuclear deterrent, as well as nuclear nonproliferation, border security, energy and infrastructure security, and countermeasures to nuclear and biological terrorist threats?

LANL not only offers cutting-edge careers in engineering, research and science, but also plentiful opportunities (with good salaries and excellent job growth too) in careers such as management, strategic planning, operations, logistics, cybersecurity, legal, finance, human resources, communications and more. Nestled in the high desert of Northern New Mexico, 35 miles from the state capital of Santa Fe, LANL boasts a quality of life envied by many. When you choose to work at Los Alamos National Laboratory, you are not only making a career choice, you are making a quality of life choice. So mark your calendars and plan to join us on 18 NOV!
