ALBANY, GA (WALB) - College graduates got a sneak peak at jobs available in Albany, Southwest Georgia, and even neighboring states.  

Collegiate only career fair was held at the Albany Civic Center. About 20 different employers were on hand, including some from as far away as St. Petersburg, Florida.

Talkeetna Jenkins says the Internal Revenue Service  booth sparked her interest. "That's something I'm looking into right now. I'm going to school for accounting right now. I have ten classes left and I'll be finished with that."

Delarveaire House said, "I think it's a great opportunity and it gives you a head start above everyone else."

Friday, the career fair is open to anyone looking for a job, or a career change.
