High school students in Albany, Georgia got to spend a full day getting acquainted with the construction industry and the multitude of jobs it offers with some quality hands-on experience at a construction career day.

Albany Technical College has hosted the career day for the past eight years through its Carlton Construction Academy, according to a report from WALB TV.

Students at the career day were given a few lessons in hammering nails, laying bricks, painting, installing drywall and how to properly put on safety gear.
