Permalink: https://doi.org/10.1190/seismic-soundoff-episode26

In this episode,  Kathryn Elkins, SEG Student and Early Career Advisor, and Vinicius Riguete, a 2017 SEG/ExxonMobil Student Education Program (SEP) participant from Rio de Janeiro State University, discuss the 2017 program, their experiences in Houston, and the 2018 SEP application process.

Much of this episode's audio recordings were captured by Vinicius Riguete during the 2017 SEG/ExxonMobil Student Education Program in Houston from 22 September through 24 September. SEG provided Vinicius a recorder to document his SEP experience as an audio diary. Listen to Vinicius's audio diary in its entirety below to get a full, unedited window into SEP.
