The Alumni Association of Joliet Catholic Academy is gearing up for the 2nd Annual Alumni Career Day on Thursday, April 14 from 7:45 a.m. until 2:45 p.m. JCA’s Career Day is a great opportunity for the school’s alumni to provide service to current students. It is also an opportunity for the students to connect with alumni representing a wide spectrum of careers.
Participating alumni will give two or more 20-minute presentations, telling their unique stories of how they got from high school to where they are today.
The objectives for the day are to make students more goal-oriented, to assist students in determining their next steps toward a career path, to encourage alumni to become involved in the mission of the school, and to foster direct participation of the alumni community in the lives of current students.
