OXNARD, Calif. -

Rio Vista Middle School students in Oxnard had a chance to meet people from a variety of fields.

They talked with a five-time Emmy winning director, an FBI agent, an engineer, a TV reporter and many more.

Students wanted to know what the professionals likes most about their jobs and how much school was needed.  They were also curious about how much money could be made.

College counselors were also on hand to encourage them to start thinking ahead about higher education.
