EP 139: “How Time Flies” NASA Engineer Who Relaunched After a 17 Year Career Break - Cynthia Stewart
Summary: Cynthia Stewart, Director of System Engineering at Science and Engineering Services, LLC, talks with Carol about her engineering start at NASA, her 17-year career break raising her four children, and how her attendance at a job fair led her back into the engineering world with no up-skilling. Cynthia shares how a temporary job as the Children’s Director at her church gave her the communications skills to re-enter the workforce. She discusses how she relaunched as a Systems Engineer, a different type of engineering than what she did before her career break, and how it was the perfect fit for her when she relaunched. More on Cynthia’s career path and relaunch can be found in this article written last year.
