Students at the Sivuniit Middle School in Igloolik got the chance to explore different career paths at a job fair their school hosted on March 13.

Nine members of the community, representing nine different careers, were invited to share what they know with all of the Grade 7, 8 and 9 students.

Student Clara Kunuk found out a bit about what it would be like to become an RCMP officer.

“I want to save lives. I chose this job … because I like finding things out,” Kunuk said.

“I will also earn lots of money if I work long enough,” she added.
