The 8th grade class at ChristianBrothers Academy held a “Reverse” Career Fair recently. The student presentations at the fair were the culmination of a major research project involving skill identification and career matching. Students spent the morning role-playing their chosen careers to small groups of parents, faculty, and staff in the school’s Lynch gymnasium.
Over 300 people attended the fair to watch the 8th graders who modeled a variety of careers including an event planner, corporate lawyer, surgeon, anesthesiologist, veterinarian, athletic trainer and dentist, just to name a few. Those attending provided valuable feedback to the junior high students while faculty observers graded the presentations to round out the project.
