VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Hundreds of Valdosta State University students and alumni got a chance to find employment today at VSU's Spring career expo.

About 50 employers from across the southeast came out to meet students. Businesses offered everything from careers, to part-time jobs and internships. The expo also included job search and interview seminars. Some Blazers even walked out with interviews lined up.

"I came in with the idea that I was just going to build my network and you know meet as many people as I can, and I wound up actually getting interviews set up for me this week. So, we'll see what the success is and hopefully it'll be some success to me after I graduate as well," said Sean Branch, VSU junior.

Career representatives all the way from the FBI to Kroger grocery stores were at the expo today.
