Maximus Sandberg stood in the middle of the Pinaymootang School gym holding a stack of pamphlets and papers he planned to take home and read. The Grade 12 student had just visited the 10 booths that were part of the health-care professions career fair held on Pinaymootang First Nation on September 24.
The job fair opened his eyes. He was thinking about entering the trades, but after visiting the booths, a career in health care was on his mind.
