ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Dougherty County elementary school students are getting a look at what could one day be their future careers.
On Friday, fifth-grade students across the district went to a job fair at the 4-C Academy.
The students had the chance to learn about 17 different careers they could one day have.
Representatives from the 4-C Academy, and professionals throughout the community, led small sessions for students.
Organizers said they are having this career fair early, because they think it will light a spark in students to do their best.
"If we can get their attention early on, we think they can make a connection, learning would then become more relevant," said Dr. Tyjuana Burton, a Northside Elementary School Counselor.
She said by having it at the 4-C academy, students could see the potential of them going to school there in the future.
