Thomasville- More than 50 area companies showcased what they had to offer this afternoon during a job fair at Thomas University.

     TU officials say, even if participants aren't offered jobs, they could learn through the interviewing skills they practiced. Participants on both sides agree. "You never know who you're going to meet, and what kind of connections you're going to make," says job seeker Shanna Spicer. "We put a lot on recruiting to come into the company, to see the benefits that we have with the company we work with," says Betty Banks of Woodmen of the World Insurance Company.

     The career fair was a success even before the actual event. Planners at TU say they had requests for two nurses right off the bat.
