UTICA, N.Y. -- The Genesis Group, Mohawk Valley Community College, and Oneida County BOCES brought together 75 career representatives from around the county to help students find a career path.

A total of 1,000 students from 18 different schools came to hear about what kinds of opportunities are available right in the Mohawk Valley. 

Students were given the chance to choose which business they wanted to hear from while they consider the career they may want to pursue.

The businesses that gave up their time to participate in this career day also benefit from the students.

“This is a wonderful opportunity because it gets them out of the office to promote who they are and what they're doing, but it also opens doors for people who might want to do an internship. We're heading into summer. You know they might hear of internships or opportunities that could help the students, so it is a win, win for the career representatives and our students,” said Ray Durso Jr., the Genesis Group director.

Representatives from the military, police, fire department, to the medical industry, and WKTV’s own Jason Powles was there to represent us in the television industry.

The career day was open specifically to ninth graders because it's this age group that students really start to think about their career path.
