Hundreds of students from across the Treasure Valley filled CenturyLink Area for career exploration day.

“Junior Achievement of Idaho,” partnered with over 50 companies to give kids hands-on exposure to career choices after high school.

Employers, teachers, and professionals coached kids on interviewing skills and resumes.

"This gives them a chance to think about what type of career do I want to look at and start preparing for now and what type of education. Is it a four-year-degree is it a two-year degree? Just all the different options that are out there for them," Junior Achievement of Idaho director Sheri Davis explained.
