Each year PON organizes a number of Career Panels to support students in their effort to build a career in the field of negotiation and conflict resolution. For example, the Building A Career in Conflict Resolution Series brought leading academics and practitioners together to share valuable insight and experiences in the following three areas:

* Overview of entry points into the Conflict Resolution field,
* Career panels on mediation, training, and research, and
* Skills for success as a conflict resolution professional.

The panels consisted of mediators, trainers, consultants, and analysts engaged in resolving conflict internationally and locally on policy issues, in the legal system, and within organizations.
