Junior Achievement of Southern Indiana is inviting students from grades eight through twelve to start thinking about their future at their annual JobSpark Career Expo this Wednesday.

The Expo will take place from 8:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. at the Old National Events Plaza in downtown Evansville, and will feature hands-on experiences of real world jobs to give young people the opportunity to see and actually try a variety of careers they may be interested in pursuing as they prepare to either enter the workforce, or head to college after high school graduation.

Over 80 industries are expected to be on hand for the event, many of which are located right here in the Tri-State.

For more information, see the event posting on the Junior Achievement Facebook page.
