Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- It's not uncommon for Northland high-school juniors and seniors to study career paths but on Wednesday students learned about not just doing the job but doing it ethically.

Local Rotary clubs teamed up to put on a day long ethical training session.

The workshop gave students an opportunity to not just solve problems they may encounter on the job, but do so in an ethical and fair manner.

"I think it'd be really interesting to work in some type of non-profit and with that I'd like to eventually work up. And so, if I want to work up in a business and be one of the people in the top of the company someday, it's very beneficial because it's teaching me how to react to these types of questions and how to be proactive rather than reactive," said Megan Stemper, a senior from Proctor High School.

Students held practice news conferences in which they discussed the ethics of issues in which they might one day find themselves involved, in future work environments.
