The Allegheny community is welcome to attend the first in the series of Lunchtime Learning presentations on September 10 at 12:15 pm in the Henderson Auditorium, Quigley Hall.

The Bruce R. Thompson Center for Business & Economics sponsors this series to provide students with opportunities to gain valuable information on topics and industries related to internships and careers in business and economics.  Speakers often choose one of two broad areas to discuss with students. The first is career oriented, and the second is issue oriented. Both topics enable students to navigate and explore job options, understand the steps necessary to pursue opportunities and learn how to self-advocate for opportunities in the workplace.
