Upper School students at University School of Milwaukee were invited to attend the third career lunch and learn program of the school year, where students have the opportunity to dine with leaders and industry experts to learn more about specific fields of employment.
This career lunch and learn, held on Tuesday, March 7, covered the field engineering and featured Jerry King ’92, who holds bachelor of science degrees in engineering and industrial psychology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and a master’s of science in structural engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. King is currently president of Precast Engineering Company, which has done structural engineering work in concrete for Lambeau Field, Soldier Field, American Family Field, and more. The previous lunch and learn events featured attorneys and entrepreneurs, and the next lunch and learn event, on March 15, will focus on medicine. All Upper School students are invited.
In addition, 25 Upper School students participated in a workshop on Sunday, March 5, where they received help preparing their resumes and participating in mock job interviews. They were assisted by 10 parent volunteers.
Both the lunch and learn events and the resume and job interview workshops were sponsored and organized by USM’s Internship and Shadowing Committee with support from the school’s Parents’ Association.
