On Nov. 14, Sacred Heart Academy hosted its annual Career Day for juniors and seniors. SHA alumnae had the opportunity to speak to students about their career path and the successes and challenges they faced after graduating from college.

The goal of Career Day is to give students an idea of what their intended major looks like on a daily basis. It is also a way for students to connect with alumnae and network with business professionals for the future. Career Day is specifically designed to benefits students at SHA.

Career Day gave alumnae the opportunity to share their expertise with students. They were encouraged to speak about their story – why they went into their chosen field, educational requirements for their profession, as well as a typical day at work. They gave students as much advice as possible and ultimately, encouraged students pursue their dreams.

With more than 23 different career paths represented, students had a variety of fields to explore. Students had the opportunity to ask questions to alumnae about time management, average work hours, what a typical work day might look like, what to expect from employers, etc.

SHA alumna Jennifer Doyle ’98 said, “I love seeing [the students] and helping you pursue your dreams. It is nice to see students have that youth, eagerness to pursue a career.”

There is no doubt that SHA wants their students to succeed. SHA gives their students multiple resources to succeed after graduation, which is why SHA has earned its reputation for academic excellence.

SHA alumna Amy Quinlan ’93 said, “Sacred Heart is without a doubt the best school. I know for a fact that SHA could not have prepared me any better after graduation.”

There is no doubt that SHA is turning their learners into leaders.
