College and career fairs aren’t just for high school students. Elementary and intermediate campuses across the Clear Creek Independent School District hosted their own career fairs in recent weeks in hopes of sparking interest in students and broadening their perspectives beginning at a younger age.

League City Elementary was one campus that hosted an event for fourth and fifth grade students. Representatives in attendance from the Clear Lake Area Chamber of Commerce ranged from a business coach, financial analyst and attorney to a music teacher, 911 dispatcher and firefighter.

"We believe that by hosting an annual career fair, we are able to give students the opportunity to visit with presenters and open doors to possibilities for future endeavors,” said League City Elementary Principal Xan Wood. “Our students are so excited to see how their interests can continue through their adult life.”

This was especially true for fourth grade student Collin Muse who was dressed and ready to speak with the representatives from a local law firm about becoming an attorney.

“It has been my dream to work as an attorney since I was four or five years old,” said Muse with his business cards and briefcase in hand. “I think it would just be a really cool job.”

Other students found new interests in careers and businesses they might not have been aware of prior to the career fair.

“I like making and fixing things, so I really want to be an engineer,” said fifth grade student Maya Trevino. “Some of the people I spoke to work with engineers, so I was interested in learning about their different jobs and how they all work together.”

Part of Clear Creek ISD’s mission is to ensure that each student discovers and develops his or her unique talents and interests. Hosting career fairs has proven to be another way to provide students with knowledge and aspirations to shoot for the stars.
