Sophomores will travel to the regional career fair at Olde Dominion Agricultural Center at 19783 US 29S, on Thurs., Sept. 28, from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m.

The regional career fair, also known as CareerChoICE, is a way for students to explore multiple career paths in the span of two hours.

CareerChoICE – Imagine, Connect, and Explore is an acronym.

Local businesses and industry representatives provide students with hands-on activities and information sheets.

Students are also given a CareerChoICE booklet to take home with them that includes information about careers and jobs in the region.

Previous students who attended career choice enjoyed their time there.

“CareerChoICE gave me connections I get to use after high school,” said Madison Swanson, junior. “I will never forget to kindness and knowledge I gained from there.”

“I had a really great experience even with it being a short amount of time,” said Caitlynn Hawkins, junior.

“I like how they had a variety of careers,” said Ameyea Murphy, junior. “My favorite was the cosmetology setup.”
