CHAMPAIGN -- High school students got a small taste of the working world Tuesday. 150-kids from around Central Illinois attended Parkland College's Jobs and Career Expo. It was put on by the group "Education for Employment."

The two-day event gives students a chance to try out jobs first-hand. They also get to see what Parkland has to offer. Organizers say it's never too early to get kids thinking about the future.
