The 8th grade class at Christian Brothers Academy held a “Reverse” Career Fair on Friday, Feb. 28. 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 their classmates and small groups of parents, faculty, and staff in the school’s Lynch gymnasium.

The 8th graders modeled a variety of careers including pharmacists, pediatricians, financial planners, corporate lawyers, interior designers, real estate agents, guidance counselors, teachers and interior designers, 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.
