VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Valdosta State University was trying Wednesday to help current students and alumni find jobs in South Georgia.

Wednesday, the university's career center hosted its 2015 Spring Career Expo. Over 40 companies were there.

Representatives from the university's grad school program were also at the expo to talk to students and alumni.

"It's just a time to bring employees in to meet with our graduates because our graduates understand that when they graduate they have to go out and meet with the employers. So, they certainly want to take advantage when the employer will come and meet with them," explained VSU Associate Director of Career Opportunities Kevin Taylor.

Several companies, including Target and Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes, were expected to come back to campus over the next three weeks and conduct interviews with interested applicants.
