Alumni Events Careers4Crusaders


The Alumni Association Careers4Crusaders committee once again held its


annual January open house for young Crusader Alums. Many recent gradu- ates from the classes of 2008 through last year’s graduating class of 2015 came back to the Bergen Catholic Gym to meet over three dozen older alums cov- ering a large variety of different careers and disciplines. Highlights included three roundtable sessions consisting of alums in the fields of education, law and finance. Younger Crusaders interested in these fields got to hear from industry insiders about the important trends and opportunities for people considering these careers. Chris Heyer ’83, a successful local attorney, ex- plained, “I think these young guys considering a career in law really got a lot out of hearing from those of us who went through the process of law school and what it takes these days to be successful. The business has changed over the years since we graduated from BC, and the kids got invaluable advice from us.” More than a few attendees nabbed summer jobs and internships for 2016


with Bergen Catholic alums. Two recent graduates, Rob Williams ’14 and J.P. Maher ’15, are both mechanical engineering majors at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken. They both secured summer employment intern- ships with a company owned by Brian Hughes ’86. Once again, the Brother- hood At Work! Young alums from the classes of 2009–16 should save the date of January 7, 2017, for this important event. The Careers4Crusaders effort by the Alumni Association held its second


successful event of 2016 on Monday, May 16, in the Bergen Catholic Library. The evening of networking, titled “Current Employment Trends and Job Market Outlook,” was headlined by guest speakers Dan Curtin ’94, Sean McCooe ’80 and John Fugazzie ’73. All three are recognized experts in the fields of employment, staffing and job placement, and gave candid explana- tions of what is happening in the current job market, opinions on where the best opportunities are for the future and how millennials are changing the rules of today’s workforce. A spirited discussion ensued, with some great questions and answers between alums of many different classes. The next Careers4Crusaders networking event will be on Thursday, October 13.
