Thanks to their liberal arts education, Christendom alumni are prepared to excel in any career field. From law to military, from finance to music and entertainment, and from writing to business, Christendom alumni can truly be found anywhere.
What makes them so special? The preparation they receive both in the classroom and outside of it. Graduates leave Christendom armed with an intellectual prowess earned from Christendom’s challenging curriculum of philosophy, theology, history, English language and literature, political science, and mathematics, but also with a practical knowledge honed by the college’s results-driven career readiness preparation.
From one-on-one meetings with career development director Kristin Stephens to resume, cover letter, and interview experience through the college’s Education for Life classroom series, students spend a good deal of their time in college preparing practically for future success. Christendom’s alumni are a testament to the success of these efforts (See the results).
At the Life on Tap networking series, Christendom welcomes back alumni to share with current students how the college helped prepare them for success in their field, along with tips for how to advance in a particular field.

“Going to the ‘Life on Tap’ event on teaching was pivotal for my career development. I had several questions about life as a teacher and wanted to confirm or change expectations that I had. At the event, I was impressed by the alumnae who gave testimony of their experience as teachers. One moment especially stood out for me when a young alumna looked around at the group of us undergraduate students and said: ‘I want you all to think of that teacher you had who made you love a subject and changed your life.’ After a brief pause she then continued, ‘Now I want you to think of that teacher who made you hate a subject. Don’t be that teacher. Being a teacher is not just something that people fall back upon if they have no other option. Being a teacher is a calling.’ This was the exact encouragement I needed at the time and I have since then held fast to my conviction and desire to teach after school.” – Theresa Crnkovich ‘2020
