A Unique Opportunity for Career Exploration
On Monday, November 5, 2018 over 300 Cor Jesu students traveled to one of over 30 locations in and around the metro area to actively experience and explore a day in the life of a professional area of their choosing. Thanks to the commitment, creativity and inspiration of our corporate partners, student participants were given the chance to open and expand their understanding of potential career areas, while trying their hand at specially planned experiential activities, and personally engaging with professionals.
Now in its seventh year, EXP3: Exposure, Experience, Exploration provides this one-day innovative learning experience—to all grade levels, at no charge—on the first Monday of each November. And each year more students—many of whom are now in college—tell us they got started or moved forward on their learning and career path because of an EXP3 experience!
If I’m being perfectly honest, I was not all that excited about not getting to sleep in on our day off… but I ended up having a really incredible time. It’s been stressful applying to college and having to write a bunch of essay about what I want to study and why, when I have had hardly any idea. But this day really gave me insight into what is possible within the legal profession and now I feel like it is something that I could seriously pursue and be happy doing. It was totally crazy and inspiring to meet all he amazing people we did, and I learned a huge amount in a short period of time. So thank you to everyone who made it possible for me!
