TOPEKA- Kan. (WIBW)-Students walked through the hallways to take the next step forward in their academic career.
Seaman High School held a job fair to help students plan for what's next. With graduation and college in the near future, they are already feeling the pressure.
"I'm kind of nervous about it, you know, but my Mom taught me well," said Tracey Morris, Seaman High School sophomore.
"Nervous, exciting, and all that stuff," said Seaman High School freshman, Austin Pagan.
Students had the chance to learn from people who already work in the field, such as state troopers, military officials, meteorologists, architects and more.
After asking a few questions, students had a better idea of what job they hope to land when they're older.
"I want to be a chef!" Pagan said.
"I've planned to be a meteorologist because I love weather," said Seaman High School freshman, Requel Butler.
"I want to be a chiropractor because the pay is good," said Seaman High School junior Ben Brazda.
To conclude each job fair session, speakers told the students how much money they can expect to make. However, these numbers didn't affect the salary goal the students already had in mind.
"At least around $50, 000 a year," Morris said.
"I probably hope to make at least $100,000 a year, if that," said Butler.
"More than 100. More than 100!" said Pagan.
"I'd rather have a job that I like than the money, but money is nice," said Brazda.
