About 1,500 local high school students were learning more about possible careers recently.

Broome Tioga BOCES held its sixth annual Career Information Fair in the gym of its main campus.

55 businesses and organizations shared info with the kids about the sort of jobs that might be available when they either graduate from high school or college.

"The students really enjoy it because they get to see what's available. They get to go out there and put their best face forward and communicate. Even if they're not looking it might help them pursue what they want to go to college for after here," said BOCES work coordinator Laurie Hahl.

Teachers from BOCES have spent the weeks leading up to the fair preparing the students on how to dress and what sort of questions to ask.
