Dougherty County - Some South Georgia high school students receive a lesson in career success from an Internet job listing site. A motivator from Monster.com urged ninth graders at Dougherty High School to start preparing for college now.

Students learned that the grades they make this first quarter of high school can affect their college acceptance and even their career decisions. They heard advice on how to get organized and succeed.

"We have some many pressures to succeed," said student Marquita Brown. "We have to start planning for college now to make sure we can achieve our goals.

Students also filled out a form that will be sent to colleges around the country for free information.
