Finding a future: 16th annual high school career fair held Wednesday

BILLINGS - The Army National Guard Armory saw a constant flow of high school students Wednesday morning.

There were more than 700 high school juniors and seniors, and they had the opportunity to learn about dozens of new career fields.

The 16th annual Jobs for Montana's Graduates career fair was held in Billings and hosted by Bridger High School.

"We're hoping that students walk away with something that they're interested in since they're juniors now," said Kayla Christean, vice president of the Bridger JMG chapter.

The career fair is organized by students and is the largest student-run fair in the state.

Sixty-five businesses and schools were represented at the fair this year, but the students hope to round up 80 organizations for next year.

Twenty high schools from south central Montana made the trip to Billings.

"A lot of the smaller schools don't have the resources to bring in all of these businesses and education options," said Vicki Kaufman, a career specialist. "So we try to offer that to them in one spot."

Career fields included everything from military, to communications, agriculture and medical.
