Skyline’s new series, Career Talk Brown Bag Lunches, continues in October with a lineup of local industry leaders, entrepreneurs, Skyline alum, and other professionals who want to share their work and career path experiences with Skyline students, and offer advice about job searches, career choices, internships, and more.
