Arrows Connect Career Night

The 2020 installment of Arrows Connect Career Night, sponsored by the Alumni Board, brought nearly 30 Arrows from the Classes of 2011-2019 together for a wide-ranging panel discussion on career opportunities and networking advice on Tuesday, January 7. Alex Cook ’91, Chairman of the Alumni Board’s Professional Networking Committee, led the conversation with five outstanding alumni panelists. A common thread throughout the night was the impact that the St. Sebastian’s Chapel Speaking program has had on the panelists’ careers. Ted Dillon ’06 shared his interesting and varied path en route to his current position in marketing. Architect Ryan McCaffrey ’08 encouraged alumni to seek the path less traveled throughout his presentation based on his time in China and France. Jordan Perry ’11 extolled the virtues of collaborating with peers and mentors and shared the demands of both a traditional and entrepreneurial career. Matt Perry ’06 emphasized the importance of matching your personal attributes with your career goals as he transitioned from professional athlete to the commercial real estate industry. Brian Strachan ’11 epitomized the hard work needed to pursue your career goals in detailing his career path from intern to launching his own private equity enterprise. Overall, it was an insightful night for all who attended. Be on the lookout next year for the 2021 edition of this annual alumni event. Thank you to all of our panelists!
