Albany-- Students looking for jobs in high-tech fields can get some help this week in Albany.

 Albany State University is hosting the Florida Georgia Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation Career Expo 2006. More than 500 students from Florida and Georgia will learn about graduate schools, laboratories and industries throughout the country.

Organizers hope the expo will increase the number of minority graduates in science, engineering and mathematics.

"It hopes to encourage undergraduates to remain in the STEM disciplines as well as to go into graduate programs so that we can fill the national shortage," says expo coordinator Connie Leggett.

"The experience that they gain from these companies will support and enhance their background, their knowledge," says Alliance Director Ralph Turner.

On Friday, students will tour labs at industries including Proctor and Gamble and Miller Brewing. The expo will last through Sunday.
