ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Students interested in construction find out you have to master a skill in today's market in order to get a job. During a careers in construction fair at the Albany fairgrounds, students from Lee and Dougherty county schools got a chance to have some hands on training in different construction related fields.

Glenn Singfield said, "You're going to have to show a very serious skill level. We're asking kids to start early to become much more introduced to their trade so they'll be much more competitive in the market."

Britt Beshear said, "I've been working on building walls, laying down bricks and I've learned a whole lot of new skills just being here for just a couple of hours." Jerry Salo said, "people from all over that are actually in the work force now showing you what you need to do and how you can get to that point."

The show introduced students to different trade services within the construction industry.
