ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dozens of South Georgia veterans learned about career opportunities Tuesday afternoon.

Albany State University partnered with the Department of Labor to host a Veterans Transition Fair.

The fair assisted those interested in starting a new chapter through completing a degree from ASU.

Several support services were available to help with enrollment process.

For students who are veterans, several companies like Procter & Gamble were there to provide employment opportunities.

"And the purpose of it is to get people who are veterans to come out to Albany state...they can look at the jobs that are available here in Albany and surrounding areas...so it's also a career fair as well," said ASU Santee Archer. 

ASU staff said they plan to host more events for veterans.
