As we prepare to turn the calendar to 2015, it is once again time to look back on another great year for Notre Dame and the Monogram Club. On New Year’s Eve, we conclude our recap of the significant Monogram initiatives, events and accomplishments from 2014. Our final post of the year focuses on December’s Monogram Career Network visits…
When people talk about attending this University, it’s not uncommon to hear the phrase, “Notre Dame is not a four-year decision. It is a 40-year decision.”
For student-athletes, managers, trainers, cheerleaders and video technicians, the Monogram Club strives to help fulfill that lifelong promise. One of the ways the Club seeks to support its members’ professional development is through the Monogram Career Network (MCN).
Established in 2013, the MCN aims to pair students with alumni who recognize the unique nature of being a student-athlete at Notre Dame and who can help them target potential internship and full-time opportunities.
Earlier this month, members of the Monogram staff met with several alumni in New York and California as the Club seeks to expand the MCN. From Twitter and LinkedIn in the Bay Area to Goldman Sachs and Ralph Lauren in the Big Apple, Executive Director Brant Ust (’00, baseball), membership coordinator Mike Sullivan (’09, manager), and Student-Athlete Careers Program Director Stephanie Felicetti (’09, softball) connected with a number of prospective MCN members.
During fall break, several Notre Dame teams also had the opportunity to network with Irish alumni, including baseball in Chicago, men’s lacrosse in Seattle and men’s tennis in NYC.
