College helps students find jobs


Wiregrass Georgia Technical college is helping it students and graduates find jobs.

More than 20 companies took part in a job fair there Wednesday.

Wiregrass Georgia's career services director says there are a lot of jobs in the fields of allied health and customer service.

Applicants were able to meet face-to-face with employers, and fill out applications.

Caroline Hines has been looking for a full-time job for two years.

She has licenses for dental and cosmetology work. "I'm qualified, and I'm a veteran, and they said veterans have preference, but I don't think so," said Hines.

The career services director says a lot of smaller employers aren't doing much hiring right now, but thinks the job market is picking up.
