ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The mayor of Albany is looking to get as many people employed with sustainable long-term jobs by hosting a workforce and hiring forum on Wednesday. 

The town hall-style forum will feature five panelists, each representing different sectors of business including manufacturing, defense, logistics and healthcare. 

The event will offer information on what these major industry sectors look for in future employees. 

The forum is an addition to a series of forums organized by the Mayor's Coalition for Economic Development. 

"One of the things we seek to do is to let our people know what's available and how to go about getting the jobs that are available, what training is necessary because things have changed so much and they're changing continuously," said Albany Mayor Dorothy Hubbard. 

Wednesday's forum will be from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Albany Government Center in room 100 and is free for the public.
