UChicago Lunch & Learn

Lunch & Learn Volunteers will make short 20 minute presentations highlighting their college/career path in the fields of business or law, including but not limited to the following: college selection, major, internships, mentors, first job out of college, best & worst part of their current job, advise for students interested in a career in business or law. The presentations will be followed by a Q & A session

Lunch & Learn events are an opportunity for professionals to discuss relevant, fun and helpful topics with high school students (grades 10-12) that are currently interested in pursuing careers in business or law. Each session, 2-3 professionals will share their path to success and answer student questions about college and careers. Volunteers are encouraged to  include a hands-on activity or photos to highlight their field of work.  Lunch & Learns are an ideal environment for students to start their networking journey and to connect with peers in their school who share a similar career interest.

Volunteers will increase student knowledge in the skills required in their field, assist students in building confidence to network and provide insight into the many opportunities available in the business and law sectors.
