On March 5th, St. Louis Hall echoed with the voices of current students, alumnae, parents of students and alumnae, and friends of Louisville all participating in our biennial Career Fair. Every two years, the counseling department at Louisville brings together a cross-section of people with professions in various industries to meet and speak with the student body...
Presenters are grouped by industry, usually at tables of two or three. They bring tools of their trade, samples of their work, and often, some candy to break the ice. The students enter the gym by grade level and, literally, walk the floor visiting those who work in professions that are of interest. Some solidified the career path in which they’re interested. Others discovered new options that were never considered.
As always, our Alumnae delivered in participation and excitement. Classes from 1968 to 2013 were represented. There were authors (Kelley Browne ’84) and Academy Award winners (Ve Neill ’68), attorneys (Melissa Hilario Sanchez ’86, Gisselle Mencia Labrenz ’97, Elena Miller ’88) and realtors (Christina Pambakian ’00). Serendipitously, Alicia Aboularage Calvo ’83, a registered dietician, was seated next to Melissa Ireland ’01, Sports Dietician at Pepperdine University Athletics. Ireland shared that Calvo inspired her career path at, you guessed it, Louisville Career Day!
We’re always looking for mentors and speakers to present to the students. Please reach out to Teresa Knight McMenamin ’89 firstname.lastname@example.org more information.
