Forty nine King’s College students recently travelled to the nation’s capital to participate in the fifth annual Career Day sponsored by the King’s Washington, D.C., Area Alumni Club (KWAC).

The two-day event began with an opening reception, featuring guest speaker Honorable Patrick A. Mulloy, a 1963 King’s graduate and an adjunct professor at Catholic University  Twenty five Washington-area residents, the vast majority of whom were King’s graduates ranging from the class of 1950 through the class of 2012, 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 government ethics, applying for federal jobs, interview tips, and career opportunities in the FBI and in national security.  Students also had an opportunity to participate in breakout sessions detailing job opportunities in the fields of nuclear and cyber security, accounting, information technology and services, lobbying, education, non-profit fundraising, business management, and the New York Stock Exchange.
