Junior Mission Designer at Hangar 13

This is one of the more difficult industries to get into, but there are many paths.  Know where you want to end up before you start.  Once you get in, don't be afraid of being the only woman in the room - it will happen.  When it does, don't be a wallflower: sit at the table, make yourself heard.  Lastly, don't be afraid to make mistakes and ask stupid questions - that is how you grow.
