PEOPLE young and old were flocking to Ipswich Town's ground searching for a new career today.

But it was not a crowd of would-be footballers looking for a break into the world of soccer.

PEOPLE young and old were flocking to Ipswich Town's ground searching for a new career today.

But it was not a crowd of would-be footballers looking for a break into the world of soccer.

It was school children, college students and anyone else interested in checking out the Evening Star's Careers Show 2001, in association with the Learning and Skills Council.

Hundreds of people had already visited the all day show at Portman Road by lunchtime, investigating a wide spectrum of careers such as the Royal Air Force, journalism, recruitment, hairdressing and the construction industry.

Amberfield School pupils Emma Papworth and Cerys Catton were hoping they could find out something about a career in medicine, but had also looked at college courses and the Army stall.

Cerys, 13, said: "It's good because you get the chance to look at things in advance so you know what your options are."
