ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Downtown Albany’s Hilton Garden Inn is gearing up for its first Southwest Georgia College and Career Fair.

The event will be held on Saturday, May 7, 2016, from 12:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. inside the hotel’s ballroom.

Representatives from area colleges, companies, and organizations will be on hand to present information on services that they offer as well as answer questions from guests.

“There’s a lot of people in the area that say there are no jobs in Albany, they don’t know about a lot of the non-profit organizations, and just getting information about school,” hotel sales manager Domoni Craig says.

So, organizers for the career fair did some brainstorming and came up with Saturday’s event which includes a large portion of the region.

“I have some people coming as far as Tallahassee to be a vendor and participate in the fair. We’ve even reached out to a few people in Atlanta,” Craig adds.

Downtown manager Latoya Cutts will be the guest speaker at Saturday’s fair. She will share information on the local employment rate and the importance of education.

Admission is $5 but you can get in for free if you show your resume or business card.
