Career Day

Career Day

Jesuit High School's juniors and seniors engaged in expert presentations from distinguished alumni and other accomplished professionals during the annual Career Day on Wednesday (Feb. 8).

A total of 25 presenters, including 19 alumni, spanning a vast range of vocations and graduation years, enriched the students throughout the morning in small-group sessions on campus. Every junior and senior participated in four 35-minute presentations, with all of them in-person except for Zoom presentations with Hollywood movie and TV screenwriter Matt Lopez '88.

The sessions included careers such as Biomedical/Chemical Engineering (Dr. Matthew Lazzara '93), Finance/Entrepreneurship (Dylan McCrory '03 and Shaun Abraham '98), ER Physician (Dr. Carlos Smith '90), Crime Scene Investigation (Diane Mueller, P '26), Accounting (Andrew Schultz '85), Real Estate Law (Tyler Hudson '03), and Sports Communications (Nelson Luis '88).

Alumnus Grant Podsobinski '04, started the morning off at Convocation in the Chapel of the Holy Cross. (Click here to view Podsobinski's presentation on the Jesuit YouTube channel.) The Area Executive Vice President at Gallagher, a global insurance, risk management company, Podsobinski spoke about the influence of his Jesuit High School education on his career, and how keeping a journal of his daily prayer has made a huge positive impact on his life. Podsobinksi then engaged students in small-group sessions about his career.
