If you only have one expdp running, just rerun expdp with the same username and password then at the expdp prompt:  kill_job

The docs always have the information you need:

If the job is already running and you are yet to get the prompt then you could simply press

Ctrl + C

and then type

stop_job= immediate

If there are multiple jobs and no prompt is available in your terminal window, then you can query the dba_datapump_jobs data dictionary

SELECT owner_name, job_name, operation, job_mode, state
FROM dba_datapump_jobs;

select the job name from this and then attach yourselves to it before killing it in actual

expdp system/orcl attach=<JOB_NAME>

Agree with Steve, Best Place to start with is Oracle Docs

Interesting joke...  Will the expdp database job survive a 'shutdown abort'?  Might be worth a quick test?
