Alumnae Office Hosts Career Expo

The St. Joseph’s Academy Alumnae Office hosted the 2023 Career Day Business Expo on November 14. Seventy-two professional women gathered on campus to share their career experiences with SJA students.

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 expo also helps students narrow their choices of professionals they would most like to job shadow in the spring. 

The expo was coordinated by Alumnae Director Alli Bourgeois ’14.
