Lakeland's Career Development Office hosted another dynamic event on Tuesday, when more than 40 students joined representatives from 19 top local companies for a three-course lunch-and-learn session.

Lunch and Learn at LakelandThe hour-plus get-together focused on the do's and don'ts of job interviews that take place over a meal.

Sharply dressed Lakeland College senior Ben Manske, of Neenah, said this was a highly successful endeavor.

“All students should jump at the chance to participate in these great events that Career Development is offering,” Manske said. “They are right here, on campus, and are super helpful. I’ve already collected a handful of business cards and been invited to coffee by some of the business representatives. I’m definitely going to take them up on their offer.”

Jess Lambrecht, director of career development, and Kay Voss, assistant director of career development, spoke with the students on Tuesday about everything from what kinds of food items to avoid ordering to how to act during the interview.

Between courses, the company representatives offered tips to the students. Of course, it was also a great chance for the students to network with the business reps at their tables during lunch.

"Lakeland is an important constituent in this community,” said attendee Jim Gallimore, senior vice president at BMO Harris Bank in Sheboygan. “These students are our future, and I enjoy the opportunity to share the value of my experience with them.”

Added Debra Noyes, IT change management process owner at Johnsonville in Elkhart Lake: “I think this is a very good opportunity for the students and I am happy to be a part of it.”
