High school students look at possible careers

QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) - High school students got a peak into the working world Tuesday.

900 high school sophomores from Pike and Adams Counties went to John Wood Community College for a career fair.

Students chose professions they were interested in and heard from people who work in those fields.

Many students said the career fair was helpful, even if they didn't know yet what career path they'll choose.

"I have no idea what I want to do, but I really liked the photography and I learned a lot about everything," Sarah Neiswender said.

"I want to be an oral surgeon and so I tried to pick fields that would get me into medical, so I chose physician and nursing and athletic training," Kayden Miller said.

WGEM News's Matt Schmidt stopped in and spoke to them about what it's like to work at a news station.
