HERKIMER – It’s time for some local students to start thinking about their future careers.

On Tuesday morning at Herkimer College, about a thousand ninth grade students from 10 Herkimer County schools learned from experts in their fields about potential careers.

Each year, The Genesis Group partners with the Herkimer County Guidance Association to bring more than 50 career representatives for discussions and interactions with students.

“Just locally – with the new companies of Danfoss Silicon Power, Tractor Supply Company – you're going to have 600 jobs and they need students today,” said Ray Durso, executive director of The Genesis Group. “So, they're here getting information about what they need for education and their skills going forward.”

The number one career draw for students is military and law enforcement.

Next month, The Genesis Group will work with Oneida County teens.
