Trinity welcomed back alum Craig Gallman ’90 on September 24 as he met with a group of marketing/management students to share his successes and experiences working through multiple careers and how Trinity played a role in each career.
Gallman gave students practical and tested ideas on how to enter the job market and develop a professional network. He offered advice for interviewing and networking, discussed the fields he went into as well as ones students were interested in, and opened up the presentation for any questions they had.
“It was nice to hear from someone who has had so many different jobs, many of which don't relate to each other, talk about how he has used the things he has learned at Trinity in those jobs,” said Joe Koltz ’11 of Oak Lawn, Illinois, a current business student. “I thought it was really cool to see how a general business degree is important in so many different career choices.”
Gallman graduated from Trinity with a degree in marketing and has enjoyed much career success. He entered the job market in sales at MicroAge Computer Store. He moved on to Dontech, which, at the time, was the largest provider of Yellow Pages information in the Midwest.
Gallman’s career continued as he joined Zimmer Dental, a leading provider of dental implants, where he is currently one of the top producers in the company.
In addition to his work at Dontech and Zimmer Dental, Gallman has started two successful businesses which he currently runs with a partner: Honey Cuts for Men, with four locations in the south suburbs, and Spin Club, a cycling studio, located in Mokena, Illinois.
