Hundreds of First Nations teens looking for career ideas are at Prairieland Park in Saskatoon today.

There are plenty of people looking to hire at the Future is Yours Career Fair, put on by the Saskatoon Tribal Council and PotashCorp.

About 700 students are expected to be at the career fair which features 70 exhibitors.

"With an event like this, of this magnitude, we're hoping that it opens some doors for kids to link with industry partners that we have and other employers," Dennis Esperance, who chairs the fair, said.

"We're trying to get our kids — our youth in our community — to think about careers and not just jobs, and education is the foundation of anything they do."

Among the booths are policing, jobs in the trades, and resource industries.
