Local high school students are getting to explore job and college major options after high school graduation. The Topeka Boy Scouts organized a career fair at Highland Park High School for students.
Local businesses filled the school gym to talk with high schoolers about what they do in their career. Freshman and sophomores were also able to get a head start on their career planning.
“We’re helping kids to get on the right path, and to make good choices for the future,” said Erin Aldridge, from the Jayhawk Area Council Boy Scouts of America. “And to know what they’re going into so that they’re not wasting their parent’s money going into career fields, that are not of interest. And then changing halfway through, and going through more schooling.”
KSNT News reporter McKenzi Davis was also at the career fair, talking to students about what it’s like to work in journalism.
