Each spring, an impressive roster of alumni and friends come together for the annual Husky Career Lunch. Their role is to answer questions, provide job search tips and generally speak to students about their career fields and areas of expertise. It’s a valuable resource for UW students, and on Wednesday, April 21 the Husky Career Lunch celebrated its 10th anniversary.
A big thanks to our table hosts from Nordstrom, Microsoft, Boeing, Starbucks and many other companies big and small. Check out this short video interview with table host Micah Blair, a 1999 graduate of UW Bothell who was volunteering for his fifth Husky Career Lunch.
Husky Career Lunch continues to make an impact on UW students. Lauren Lamb, a senior majoring in history, found herself drawn to the education table.
“I came into the luncheon not expecting to find my calling, but hoping that I might narrow down a career I was more attracted to,” Lauren said. “I have always had a love for education but wasn’t ready to accept that it was truly the field for me. However, during lunch today I learned that education is a diverse field that has so much to offer, so I am no longer afraid of picking it for a career path.”
