Twenty-five Southern Columbia alumni returned to their alma mater on Friday, November 30th to participate in the Second Annual Alumni Career Day organized by the Southern Columbia Community Foundation. Representing a variety of careers, the alumni met with freshmen, sophomore and junior students in a career fair format held in the Nesbitt Gymnasium. The three grade levels were allotted 50 minutes apiece to visit with the alumni, allowing each student to seek out and meet with alumni who work in fields of interest to them. After the career fair, the alumni embarked to Ponduce Banquet Hall where they met with the senior students in a business lunch setting. Each alumnus engaged small groups of students in career-related discussions while enjoying a four-course meal sponsored by BSI Corporate Benefits, LLC of Bethlehem. Josh Maciejewski, co-founder and COO of Function of Beauty, served as the luncheon's keynote speaker. The 2003 graduate shared anecdotes and insights that led to the career successes he has realized, encouraging students to not let fear of failure or self-doubt get in their way of future pursuits. Alumni Career Day has proven to be an effective and popular way for students to gain exposure to different careers. We are very thankful to our alumni presenters and appreciate their willingness to share their experience and expertise with our students!
