ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A big crowd came out to the first Southwest Georgia career fair Saturday.

More than 200 people looking for a job or education opportunity had a chance to do some searching at the downtown Hilton Garden Inn in Albany.

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.

The event was put on by the hotel.

“It was free to the community. We wanted to increase the awareness of organizations within the southwest Georgia area that we're doing hiring,” said Hilton Garden Inn’s Sales and Catering Manager Domoni Craig.

They plan to have another one in the fall. Craig was surprised with the turnout.
