Albany -- 50 employers from around the country talked with Southwest Georgia technical students Thursday.   It was the ninth annual career fair sponsored by Albany Tech and the Department of Labor.

Employers ranging from several South Georgia School systems, to Police and Fire Departments, to industries like the Marine Base, talked with job seekers.

19 year old Kiante Smith, who will soon graduate in Computer Electronics Technology, was one of the students handing out resumes and filling out applications.

Smith said "it's a lot of opportunities here for people."

Employers from Tallahassee, Columbus, and Atlanta were at the career fair. but the U.S. Border Patrol came the farthest, all the way from Arizona, looking for job seekers.
