The Career Center is very excited to hold the annual Student-Athlete Career Week from March 30 to April 4. This week is especially geared towards the career development and considerations of the Mount’s athletes. Together with the assistance of Chris Stack, coordinator of support services for student athletes, and Kaitlin Hallahan, the assistant director of the Office of Alumni Relations, Student-Athlete Career Week is one way to give back to those athletes who continuously represent the Mount.
The second annual Alumni Career Panel will take place on Tuesday, April 1 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. in the O'Hara Dining Room. Even though this event will have more of an athletic focus, this is great opportunity for all students to hear from alumni about their experiences in various career paths. There will also be time for refreshments and for students to have one-on-one conversations with the alumni, so don't miss this chance to learn more about the transition from school to work and to network with alumni!
Wednesday’s event will feature a lecture presentation given by the President of Hanover Capital Management, Mark Riggs: “Get A Hold of Your Financial Footing.” As a member of the class of 1998 and the MBA class of 2002, Riggs is very familiar with the Mount and he hopes to offer students advice on how to handle finances before and after graduation. Along with his presentation, there will also be time to socialize and network, so be sure to attend this lecture on Wednesday, April 2 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. in the Horning Hospitality Suite.
The final event of Student-Athlete Career Week is the Etiquette Dinner on Thursday, April 3 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the O'Hara Dining Room. Director of the Internship Center at Messiah College Michael True will once again host this semester's Etiquette Dinner to teach Mount students the essential skills needed in a professional dining setting, such as holding your plate and drink in one hand while shaking hands with the other professionals present at the event.
If you have any questions about any of these upcoming events, contact the Career Center at 301-447-5202, Career-Center@msmary.edu or simply stop by the Career Center to make an appointment. Remember that the Career Center is here to serve all students, and we hope to see everyone at these great events!
