Albany Tech prepares for career fair

October 10, 2007

Albany--The latest statistics show that Albany's unemployment rate currently stands at 5.1 percent, that's slightly higher than the state's rate.  If you're a part of those statistics, help is on the way.  On Thursday, Albany Technical College will kick off it's annual fall career fair.

The career fair will take place at the Kirkland Conference Center from 9 AM to 12 PM.  This event is open to the public, so you don't have to be a student to attend.

More than 45 southwest Georgia employers will take part in the career fair.

The event will give jobseekers a chance to speak with employers and learn about the various companies and career opportunities available to them.

Many of the companies participating in Thursday's event are looking to fill positions within the company.

Organizers say in the past, the career fair has usually attracted about 500 people looking for jobs. They hope to attract even more this year.

"We just ask that jobseekers come prepared. Bring a resume. Make sure you're dressed professionally. And be prepared to share information about themselves. Create that sixty second commercial to sell themselves," says Judy Jimmerson, director of career services.

Here are the companies participating in Thursday's career fair:
