Albany-- In today's high-tech, competitive job world. You can't start preparing for a career too early. Today at Albany State University, middle school students from around southwest Georgia learned about jobs they may want to pursue.

The Early Intervention Multicultural Career Fest informed them of the qualifications and preparation needed for various careers.

"If these students seriously begin to think about careers and what it takes to prepare them for hopefully careers in early intervention, they will move into high school with those credits and complete a college prep track and then be able to move into a college position, or either technical school, or right into the workforce" said special education professor Kimberly Fields.  

Some students won prizes for their participation in the career fest, and all students got a tour of the Albany State Campus.
