Edinboro University’s Center for Career Development hosted its first lunch and learn workshop series Wednesday, March 1 on the second floor of the Baron-Forness Library in the learning commons.

The Center for Career Development sponsored two sessions, one starting at 11 a.m. and another at noon. Students were invited to partake in a resume building session with a free lunch provided.

“We thought we could entice students to come out if we offered a free lunch. It’s a great way to just give them some tips for starting a resume, or tips for editing their resume,” said learning commons graduate assistant Lauren Parent.

She continued: “We have a lot of students who visit our center and they want some resume help; they need tips, advice, (and) they want a one-on-one session for a review.” The lunch and learn workshops will be held at least once a semester and will mainly cover resume building skills.

“They (lunch and learn sessions) do cover some cover letter tips, but it mostly is just resume advice,” said Parent.

She continued: “I want students to know the lunch and learn series, and the learning commons just in general, [as it’s] a place for them to come get help and advice for any of their career or professional writing needs.”

The learning commons’ Director for Career Development and Experiential Learning Monica Clem led the first resume building session.

The learning commons is open Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., for all students seeking academic help or resume building tips.
