Eighty-five middle and high school students at the Horizon Center, an alternative school in Alachua County, received a lot of information from local professionals and job recruiters at the inaugural Horizon Career Day.
It was held last Tuesday at the school in northeast Gainesville.
The day consisted of 25-minute sessions on employability skills and also on various professions, including information technology, health care, emergency response, automotive, service, construction and legal industries.
Horizon Assistant Principal Dr. Anntwanique Edwards said the goal was to help students focus on future career goals and the things they need to do to accomplish those goals.
Horizon Principal James Speer career day, which will become an annual event at Horizon, was a collaboration between Horizon Center, FloridaWorks and the Gainesville area Chamber of Commerce.
