tapAlumni Joe McFadden, Alyssa Lombardi, and Jesse Gallante, all working for the federal government or civilian military, will return to Christendom’s campus to mentor students for “Life on Tap” on Tuesday, February 16. A unique opportunity for students to network and learn the secrets of success from these alumni, the event will begin at 7:30 pm in Christendom’s St. Kilian’s Café, and refreshments will be provided.

“Life on Tap,” sponsored by the college’s office of career and leadership development, brings alumni from a variety of careers back to campus each semester, showing current students how their liberal arts education can empower them to pursue any vocational calling.

mcfadden-joeOf the many available career opportunities for Christendom graduates, two of the more popular options are federal government and civilian military, due in part to Christendom’s close proximity to Washington, D.C. Alumnus Joe McFadden chose the former option initially after serving in the United States Marine Corps. Now, he is a federal government employee, working in IT for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

alyssa-tapAfter earning her B.A. in history from Christendom in 2003, Alyssa Lombardi worked in a variety of positions before becoming a middle school teacher in Alexandria, Va. for nearly six years. In 2009, Lombardi joined the United States Coast Guard as a program analyst, using her skills to help promote the Coast Guard’s mission to protect the environment in ports and navigable waterways.

Gallante served in the Air Force for four years, including as an intelligence analyst at Langley for nearly half that time, using his skills to support the U.S. Army, Marine Corps, Coalition partners, NATO forces, and more in their efforts. After his time in the Air Force, Gallante stayed within the intelligence community, both as a consultant for Blue Mantle Technology and as an intelligence analyst for BAE Systems, providing direct intelligence support to the Global War on Terror in the latter.

Students, alumni, faculty and staff of the college are encouraged to attend this, and all, “Life on Tap” networking events. Due to its popularity, all are encouraged to arrive early as well.
