Students from the RAS and TASC preparation programs took advantage of a great opportunity during their lunch break. The first “Learning at Lunch” gave a group of juniors and seniors a chance to learn more about job prospects for after they graduate, while also enjoying a few slices of pizza.
Heather Buck visited from the Tompkins County Personnel Department to speak about civil service positions and how to look for work as a civil servant. She explained that there are civil service jobs in almost every field of work, and that currently Tompkins County is the only place in New York State where taking a civil service exam is complete free.
The “Learning at Lunch” presentations are to be monthly, with each month featuring a new guest and focusing on another topic to help TST students be better prepared to achieve success.
