Career planning starts young.
Central Campus became center stage for 16 career categories, where freshman and sophomores had a front row seat to future planning.
Some career professionals brought props --- like the snake from Roosevelt Park Zoo.
Others came in uniform and ALL brought passion for their respective fields in hopes of drawing young blood into the profession.
The most popular breakout sessions were in the music room, or with an FBI agent --- and building and construction options were popular in the shop.
Career Counselor Steve Beutler (Butler) says sometimes the least popular breakout sessions are the most important at a career fair.
(Steve Beutler, Minot High Career Counselor) "Some stand out where there's a lot of interest and some there's not a lot of interest but the presenters still come and talk about their career to those who are interested. I tell them, if they don't have a lot of kids interested, we need them here more than ever to nurture those kids along who are interested in their career field."
Career fairs at the Freshman-Sophomore level are held every other year and at Magic City Campus every fall.
