CISB Lunch Like a Pro

Lunch Like a Pro gives CISB students the opportunity to have a one-on-one lunch discussion with a CISB graduate.

Participants meet once in winter quarter for a one-on-one lunch discussion. Alumni are asked to pick up the tab for lunch. Students are responsible for their own travel and parking expenses.

Alumni may choose to include the student in one or more of the following activities after meeting with the student:

  • Meetings with co-workers.
  • Networking with co-workers.
  • Tour of company or facility.

Benefits to Students:

  • Learn about career paths in international business.
  • Gain career advice and industry knowledge.
  • Develop their professional network.

Benefits to Alumni:

  • Develop mentoring and coaching skills
  • Give back to CISB
  • Stay connected with Foster and the UW

Mentors are really important for personal development at any point in one’s career. Programs such as this provide an opportunity to bounce our ideas off of someone who is far more experienced in the field and who has traveled a similar path. It is useful to see what worked for them, and also to hear what they think of your plans.
