A Jesuit Success Story

November 9th, 2010 cmcurr11

Today, a certain organization held a recruiting information session for seniors. When I first entered Holy Cross, I only wanted to work for this organization – that was my plan. Then the Jesuits got a hold of me and the rest is history…

My Jesuit education made me reflect on why I even wanted to join this organization – did I feel a strong passion for it? Could I be a woman for others by working for them? Was this organization the best way to redistribute my talents to better society? After periods of deep reflection, I realized that the answer to all of those was no. Instead of planning out my life based upon one organization, I began to explore my personal interests – what made me tick, what resonated within me the most.

Instead of attending that organization’s recruiting fair, I skipped off to the library to work on my thesis on Julian of Norwich and Flannery O’Connor. Funny how things change.
