Career fair beneficial to students

Published 10:18 am Tuesday, February 3, 2015

All too often we hear of college students trying to figure out what they want to do after they receive their diploma. For some, they may know from an early age but for the majority, the long-term career may be a mystery.

This can especially be true for middle school students, but the recent career day at Symmes Valley Middle School has benefits that go beyond just seeing a variety of companies.

In many cases, learning about different industries and fields can create a lasting spark that could be the defining factor in choosing a career or preparing for the future.

These types of events are essential for the youth attending because the information shared and gathered can set a path for a student who otherwise may not be available. Students can gain a better understanding of various industries such as health care, education or skilled trades.

We commend those businesses that attended the career day along with the administration from the school district that put this event on for their students.

These students are the future leaders and workers of our community that will keep our economy moving. Having events like this is encouraging, and to see the interest from our students in these industries will benefit us all in the long term.
