About Take a Bronco to Lunch
COBE Career Services offers a program called Take a Bronco to Lunch. With this program, we match business-focused students with a professional for a one-time lunch. During that lunch students learn and gain insights into a field of their interest. This provides a unique opportunity for students to meet with a mentor in a friendly and relaxed setting.
Here are a few of the reasons why you should be part of Take a Bronco to Lunch.
- Expand your network
- Gain advice on job searches
- Broaden your career perspective
- Get guidance with career decisions
- Learn the daily responsibilities of different jobs
How it Works
Registration and matching with professionals is fast and simple. Students first provide us with basic background information. Next, we use that information to match students with professionals in their field of interest. After being matched with a professional, students contact the professional to coordinate a time to meet for lunch, coffee, or talk over the phone. For this one-time event, the professional has agreed to pay for the student’s lunch. Please be respectful and prepared to pay your own way if necessary.
If you are interested in sharing your experiences with a student please email email@example.com. Our staff will get back to you within 2 business days. Timing will be set up to accommodate your schedule after we match you with a student.
If you are a current COBE student and interested in learning from a local professional please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Our staff will get back to you within 2 business days. We will set up a time to meet and collect information to match you with a professional.
