BURTON — More than 3,000 high school students from 45 schools across six counties paid a visit to the Dort Federal Event Center Wednesday, Oct. 23 to meet with more than 50 exhibitors at the GST Michigan Works! MiCareerQuest East.

The event exposed students to a number of different careers with many exhibitors offering hands-on experience.

The event’s purpose was two-fold, allowing students to see the number of great careers available to them throughout the state and connect employees to future team members.

View Newspaper Group was on hand to talk to students about the many careers available in publishing.
