ORCUTT, Calif. -- Students at Orcutt Academy High School spent Friday taking part in one of the school's most popular events.

The school's annual Career Day was held over a three hour period, starting at 8:10 a.m. until 11:15 a.m.

During that time, students spent time listening to four different guest speakers of their choice. Each session lasted 40 minutes.

"People from within our community came and talked about their profession," said student Adrianne Lambert.

There were about 50 different professionals that took part in the event.

It's been a staple at the school for nearly 10 years.

"It's really important because students can get to learn what they want to do," said student Kira Hopkins. "If they have a sense of what they want to do, they can see if they really want to do that."

Some of the occupations represented included, police K9 officer, photographer, welder, video game developer, worship leader, mechanic, physical therapist, graphic artist, banker, fashion designer and many more.

"I like the options," said Lambert. "It's amazing to seeing that person talk to a lawyer, or a doctor or a tattoo artist to someone working in the wine industry."
