NOW: Students learn about careers in the Bucks franchise at Fiserv Forum career day

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Two hundred and fifty Milwaukee students are thinking about their futures after going to a career day at Fiserv Forum Thursday, Oct. 19. They learned how they could get involved in the Bucks franchise off the court. 

Students heard from people working in business, technology and health care who found careers in the sports organization. 

Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce (MMAC) leaders want this exposure to spark a long-lasting interest. 

"They're gonna see today, all sorts of different occupants and jobs, and hopefully they see that and be like, 'That is so me! I wanna do that!' and then hopefully they get a job here in Milwaukee and stay here," said Dale Kooyenga, vice president of the MMAC.

The students said they're taking advantage of the chance to talk to people who worked their way into different careers. 

"Instead of looking it up on the internet, you can actually talk to people that's in that field to understand what you're getting into," said Anijah Howard, senior at Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy. 

"I have lots of interests in a lot of things, so I just really wanna think like, 'Oh, I can do that, and I can do that,' even though my interest's in one place and another and I don't have to pick one thing that I wanna do," said Mykayla Ely, Milwaukee Academy of Science junior. 

The career fair focused on jobs that are most in-demand within the Bucks organization and in Milwaukee as a whole.
