Fifty King’s College students recently travelled to the nation’s capital to participate in the fourth annual Career Day sponsored by the King’s Washington, D.C., Area Alumni Club (KWAC).
The two-day event began with an opening reception. Twenty-two Washington-area King’s graduates, ranging from the class of 1950 through the class of 2011, hosted the students in their homes that evening.
The program the next day featured 20 speakers, almost half of whom are King’s graduates working in the Washington, D.C., area. Topics covered in the general sessions included an overview of private industry in the area, applying for a federal job, and career opportunities in the FBI and Veterans Affairs.
Students also had an opportunity to participate in breakout sessions detailing job opportunities in the fields of insurance, financial research, banking, information technology and services, accounting, lobbying, education, law, and acquisitions and contracting.
King’s College is a Catholic College sponsored by the Congregation of the Holy Cross.
