Area students learned about a variety of careers Friday at the 2013 Jefferson County Career Fair at Madison Junior High School.
The fair featured professionals from the fields of community development, public relations, fine arts, creative writing, professional photography, education, law enforcement, military, medical, print and broadcast journalism, social services, culinary arts, hospitality industries, funeral services, technology, engineering, manufacturing and business development.
The career fair, now in its 14th year, is for seventh graders from Madison Junior High, Shawe Memorial Junior High and Southwestern Middle schools.
Dawn Bottomley, one of the career fair organizers and counselor at Southwestern, said that they are trying to boost the representation of engineering and manufacturing jobs, as well as inviting speakers from trades that the students request.
The most requested in the last few years have been musicians, chefs and military personnel.
