SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTHI)- Sullivan High School students are on the path to success after the school held its first career fair.
The event was hosted by teachers and a student-run group called "JAG" or jobs for America's graduates.
Administration helped students prepare by editing resumes and practicing interview skills.
Both Juniors and Seniors had the opportunity to speak with businesses to understand what the workforce is like.
