When Grade 10 student Kelsey Fessler walked into the Try a Career Expo, she didn’t know what career she wanted to pursue.

By the time she left, that had changed.
“Now I’m sort of thinking about medical fields because it just sounds so interesting,” said Fessler, a student at Vanier Collegiate. “It’s pretty neat.”
“I’m really liking the nursing and the hands on part of it where you just get involved. Then you’re not just learning stuff. You’re doing it too,” added fellow Grade 10 Vanier student Grayson Heber.
Fessler and Heber were two of 640 students who attended the first Try a Career Expo on Wednesday at the Moose Jaw Exhibition Grounds.
