More than 50 employers will be at College of the Canyons this Saturday, April 25, to give students of all ages a chance to match their own interests with a potential career. Discovering Careers 2009 is a free career exploration fair with hands-on activities for students from 5 to 20 years old. It runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Valencia COC campus.

This year’s expo is sponsored by the SCV School & Business Alliance, title sponsor Boston Scientific, media sponsor KHTS Radio, and academic sponsors the Hart School District, College of the Canyons and the Chancellor’s Office of the California Community College System.
In addition to the ongoing booth activities, this year’s expo will feature workshops on making money for teens, getting and holding a first job, careers in publishing and careers in engineering.
