Alum Shares Career Journey with Engineering Students

Jamie Lavigueur
Alum Krystian Link ’07 returned to SFHS in January to visit with engineering students and share about his career journey. Krystian, who said he’s “not your typical engineer” because he prefers to be more forward- and people-facing, is an Application Engineer at the software development company, Rand Worldwide.

Krystian received his bachelor of arts in Engineer Science at Benedictine University,  bachelor of science in mechanical engineering at Illinois Institute of Technology, master of science in mechanical engineering at Northern Illinois University, and MBA at Indiana University – Kelley School of Business.

Krystian shared with students that it’s OK to start small, make mistakes, then learn from those mistakes, and get better.

“God calls us to perfection, not to always be perfect,” he said.

He also encouraged students to explore their hobbies and develop them, as they can sometimes turn into opportunities. After sharing his career journey and lessons learned along the way, Krystian took the time to answer questions from students.

Thank you, Krystian, for sharing your story and expertise!
