Thomasville - Push-ups at a career fair? Not what you'd typically expect. "Just the push-ups give me more initiative to want to do it," says David Groover.

He's trying to impress the people that may sign him up for his dream job. He says, "I've been wanting to be in the Marines since I was like 10. Next week I'll probably sign up for them."

But if the Marine Corps isn't your cup of tea, there are lots of other jobs to choose from. Miles Gualtney is trying to meet as many potential employers as possible. He says, "You get to talk to people you might be working for one day, make contacts and that really helps in the real world."

Elaine Barrett is trying to make sure all her students make those contacts. Barrett says, "I always tell students that no matter where you are, you never know if you're talking to the person you might be going to to ask for a job." And she hopes that students find those jobs.

This is ninth year Thomas County Central High School has held the career fair.
