ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Troy University is offering their hand to help job hunters get the connections they need and pave the way for a career they want.

Organizations such as Keystone foods, DOCO school system, Terrell county sheriff's office and several other vendors will be in attendance to assist students and the public in finding positions within the community. Albany area coordinator Keith Gaines says they wanted to do this for their residents because its during this time when people really start to re-commit themselves to job searches and they want to help make an opportunity for them.

"Well, just the experience of applying for a job and talking to an employer about job openings is great experience for someone, especially for those who are new to the job fair," Gaines said.

The event will also have additional information about Troy University for those who want to expand their education for specific job requirements.

Job fair starts Tuesday from 10am to 12pm at the Troy University Albany site. Arrive in business attire and with any materials necessary for employers.

Address: 321 Williams Jr. Street near the Bank of America off Dawson road
