Lunch and Learn WorkshopThroughout the fall Semester, the Career Services Center has hosted a series of “Lunch and Learn” Workshops with topics ranging from office technology to using the art of improv to enhance professional communication and interview techniques. These workshops were created to increase Skyline College students’ professional development and give them the tools needed to succeed in working world.

On Friday, December 4, the Career Services Center’s Lunch and Learn Series culminated in an off-campus workshop at the Double Tree By Hilton Hotel in Brisbane to learn about personal brand building from industry experts.

Director of Human Resources, Kristi McClure-Barerra and General Manager, Jason Dorfman treated participants to an eloquent lunchtime discussion on branding techniques companies like Google, Apple and Hilton employ to elevate their own brands and how to apply those same principles in building our personal brands.

Kristi and Jason were incredible hosts and led an interactive, fun and informative workshop. We thank our Skyline College Retail Hospitality and Tourism Department for graciously providing our students with transportation for this event. We look forward to working with them in the future and encourage any students who are interested in upcoming workshops or job opportunities at Double Tree to visit the Career Services Center in Building 1 Room 1219B.
