Alumni Career Panelists Share Experiences

Saint George’s alumni shared their experiences after SGS with the Upper School students at an Alumni Career Panel on May 10 in the Upper School courtyard. Hosted by SGS Alumni President Tyson Bostrom ’11, four recent graduates spoke about how their college experiences led them to their current positions in medicine, sales, finance, and the law.

View the full hour-long Alumni Career Panel Video. Here are examples of some of the comments that they offered:

“The worst thing about my job is dealing with people. Unfortunately, in my line of legal work I do a lot of divorces, family law, child custody cases. It also is part of the best thing, which is helping people, helping children, helping families, and so there’s a lot of things that are really great about that.” – Mark Cassell ’09

“What you could start doing to prepare yourself to potentially be in a medical career is get some experience in it. Volunteer in something that you care about. I helped refugees navigate the healthcare insurance system through World Relief.” – Alicia Burns ’10

“Looking back on my time since Saint George’s, what really helped me was all of the experiences I had with the outdoor program and taking part in sports. These are experiences that not everyone has the ability to take part in at other schools.” – Matt Arlt ’16

“I think networking is huge. It still amazes me how many people are so willing to take 30 minutes or an hour out of their day to just talk to you. A lot of people I know are where they are because of reaching out.” – Taylor Sande ’20

Charity Golf Classic a Swinging Success
