The career and leadership development office will host the third “Life on Tap” of the semester on Tuesday, February 10, with talks from two Christendom College alumni who have found great success in the field of web development and internet technogy — Bryan Hadro and Brandon Vaughan. The event will be held in St. Kilian’s Café from 7:30-9:30 p.m., with snacks and beverages provided.
“Web development is an ideal field for a liberal arts major,” says Greg Monroe, director of career and leadership development. “It is an industry that is constantly evolving, so, to be successful in this field one must be able to continually adapt to globalizing trends and technology. Because liberal arts majors are problem solvers and able to think critically, they are especially well adapted to learning quickly the art and science behind web development.”
Alumnus Bryan Hadro earned his B.A. in history in 2004 and was student body president during his senior year. After graduation, he was a web application developer for a number of companies, including Seton Home Study School, Veraprise, and Trinity Consulting. He then worked as a software engineer for ESPN, and nowcurrently works as a senior web developer for US News and World Report.
Brandon Vaughan graduated with a B.A. in philosophy in 2005. He worked as a web developer for Nclud and Trinity Consulting, and later cofounded Nvite, the world’s first attendee-focused event registration and ticketing platform.
