Town of Dickinson, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Broome-Tioga BOCES hosted its annual Career Information Fair Tuesday.

Booths were set up from more than 50 vendors including local industries, health organizations, non-profit groups and more.

Area students said seeing all the possibilities made them start thinking about what's next in life.

"It brings many opportunities for a lot of kids to find jobs that they're interested in for the future careers, " said Travis Newman of Binghamton.

"It makes me want to choose if I want to go to college or if I want to join the military," said Zachary Snow of Endicott.

Organizers said many students leave this area after high school and a main goal of the fair is to get them thinking about starting careers in Broome or Tioga Counties.
