Tricky Tray - Friday March 20, 2020
 
This event sells out every year!  If you have never been, this is your year.   The gym is filled with a multitude of prizes of varying value.  You walk around and drop your raffle tickets in the buckets for the prizes you would like to win.  Then you head back to the cafeteria to your reserved table with your friends to enjoy the snacks and drinks that you bring for your group.  UC provides coffee and cookies. This year's theme is Luau, so the decor should be colorful and festive.  Below is a photo from last year, to give you a sense of the magnitude of the event, as well as a link to the ticket order form.  For tickets and information, contact Mrs. Allison Lestarchick, Director of Parent Relations alestarchick@unioncatholic.org or 908-889-1600 x353.

Career Day - Friday March 27, 2020

UC Career Day 2020 is scheduled for Friday, March 27, 2020 from 8:30am – 1:00pm at Union Catholic (snow date Monday March 30, 2020).  Each year we look to expand and enhance the opportunities for participation both by our students and also by those of you who so generously share of your time and experience.  For Career Day 2020 there will be three modules:

  1. Discussion Panels in Classrooms – Each panel will consist of 4 adults. The panels will run concurrently in various classrooms, so each panelist will participate in two 50-minute class sessions and all juniors and seniors will experience one Discussion Panel session.
  2. Career Fair Session in Gym – Adults will be grouped together by professional fields with some commonality. This option provides students the opportunity to speak directly with those who work in fields of particular interest to them. Participants will be seniors, juniors and sophomores, in rotations.
  3. Video Story Library – This is a new component for 2020. Our intent is to compile a video library of alumni (and other friends of UC) sharing a 2-3 minute video of their career journey.  This will enable alumni who are not local or not available on Career Day to participate at their convenience. It will also provide students with a chance to learn from panelists whom they were not able to hear “live.” Additionally, it will allow UC to begin to compile a Career Story Library that would be available on-demand to all UC students.

 

If you are interested in participating in Career Day 2020, you may select one, two, or all three of the above modules. If you opt to record a video story remotely (guidelines will be provided), that can occur at any time. If you select the Panels and/or the Fair, the time slots on March 27 will be as follows:

        • 8:00 - 8:30 Panelists arrive
        • 8:30 - 9:10 Coffee and overview of the day/plan
        • 9:19 - 10:09 Panel Session 1 in classrooms
        • 10:13 - 11:03 Panel Session 2 in classrooms
        • 11:03 - 11:30 Career Fair Rotation #1
        • 11:30 -11:57 Career Fair Rotation #2
        • 11:57 - 12:24 Career Fair Rotation #3
        • 12:29 - 1:19 Lunch and debrief to provide feedback

The focus is for alumni and other members of the UC Community to share their stories about how and why they arrived at their current careers.  For example, how did your interests guide you to a particular field? Are you doing something that you really like? What skills help make you successful in your career? Did you have an innate talent for numbers, writing, creativity, etc. that matched up to your career path? What work values were important to you; did you want to help people; did you prefer an outdoor setting rather than a desk job; was income potential a top priority; did you want to work collaboratively with others or in a function that was more alone? These are just some examples of the questions that will be posed to the Career Day panelists and Video Story tellers.

If you would like to participate, please RSVP by March 1 to alumni@unioncatholic.org with the following information:

        • Name
        • Year of Graduation or other UC affiliation
        • Career Field
        • Employer
        • Current Job Title & Job Description
        • College(s) attended
        • Indicate in which module(s) you would like to participate: 1.Panel Discussion, Career Fair,  3.Video Story

 

The goal is to develop a deep pool of Career Day 2020 candidates so that each module may be assembled with a blended representation of career fields, experiences and stories.   We are looking for everyone – from those who are retired to those just starting out in their careers. Feedback from last year was that students were looking for more professionals in the medical/health fields, engineering, video/computer design/gaming, art/music/fashion design, law, business, military, and trades such as electrical and plumbing. Please feel free to share this information with other UC classmates as well as family and friends.  If you would like UC to reach out to someone, just send us that recommendation and we will make the contact. The invitation to participate in Career Day 2020 is open to all.  We thank you in advance for helping the next generation of UC students in their quest to find future success!
