Tenth Grade Students Explore Future Careers

On Wednesday, hundreds of tenth grade students from across the Southern Tier got a firsthand look at future careers.

More than 30 professionals in business fields ranging from forensics to accounting were at Binghamton University for its Career Expo 2016.

Around 1,700 Broome and Tioga County students chose two of those careers to explore in-depth. Organizers said it's all about giving these students a stepping stone towards their future endeavors.

"It's a good time for them to start thinking about what careers they're interested in because over the next couple years in high school they might be able to take courses that relate to that career, which will then help them prepare for college as well," said Patty Gonz, Program Development Specialist for Broome-Tioga BOCES.

Broome-Tioga BOCES, the Broome-Tioga Counselors Association, and BU began hosting the Career Expo event in 1993.
