Professional Development Day

On April 27, Living Arts College hosted the College’s Spring Professional Development Day. This quarter, the Professional Services department planned a breakfast for the students, a guest speaker and a part-time job fair with local businesses around the area.

The students were treated to a continental breakfast in the morning before our job fair. We then had a wonderful guest speaker talk to the students about their career vision. Deb Oronzio, certified life coach and founder of Self-Empower Coaching, discussed how to find success, significance, and satisfaction in one’s current or future career. She really had the students engaged, she covered how to professionally handle themselves while networking and during an interview, and creating a brand for themselves. All the students were inspired after listening to our guest speaker, they even signed up for a free one on one consultation. Thank you so much Deb Oronzio for a very informative talk!

Afterwards, students met with local businesses around the area hiring for part-time jobs! We had Lowes Home Improvement, Milton’s Pizza and Pasta, Harris Teeter, and more! Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to visit our college and meet with our students! It was a great morning!
