High School students from all over the Drumheller and area had the opportunity to browse different career choices at the Junior Achievement Southern Alberta World of Choices career forum on March 13th at the Badlands Community Facility.
"It was incredible. It was so much fun and I learned so much. Got to meet so many cool people and learn about how to make wise choices for the future. Overall I just feel more prepared now," explained Joseph Dabrowski, a grade eleven students from Three Hills.
There was a wide representation of many careers including a funeral director, which may be something that many young people might not think of.
"I believe we have been here for all five years and the response was very good. They sat down and were eager to ask questions. A lot of it was them asking me questions about what I do and what is involved," continued Sean Grande, the Funeral Director at Courtney Winters Funeral Home.
It is not an easy task for students to decide what they are going to do after school and events like this are a great help.
"I think for a lot of them it really opens up their eyes to new things that are available to them, like careers that they just may not have even thought of before, or being able to ask the questions that you normally wouldn't get to ask and can't Google," concluded high school teacher, Ryan Hatch.
