The St. Joseph’s Academy Alumnae Office and Counseling Center hosted a Career Day Job Expo on November 14. Sixty professional women gathered on campus to share their career experiences with juniors and seniors.
The professionals set up tables in the Academy Student Center, which students visited during their lunch hours. Students were able to talk one on one with those who represented a field in which they may be interested.
The job expo was coordinated by Alumnae Director Katie Jeter Valenciano ’04 and school counselor Amy Scheurich House ’98.
“The purpose of the Career Day Job Expo was to allow SJA students to gain insight into their interests and talents as they begin the process of making informed educational and career choices,” Valenciano said, adding that the expo helped the students narrow their choices of who they would like to job shadow on February 19.
