Dewitt, NY – Eighth graders at Christian Brothers Academy held a “Reverse Career” Fair recently. The student presentations at the fair were the culmination of a major research project centered around passion, purpose, 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 pediatricians, neurologists, dentists, financial planners, corporate lawyers, engineers, coaches, veterinarians, real estate agents, FBI agents and teachers, 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.
