Although the program is just getting started, Career Services’ Kimberly Haywood said the platform will help to retain future graduates.

“We did send out invitations to 347 local employers, as well as surrounding cities and counties. We’re just actually getting started with the platform, but we are receiving feedback from the students and employers. We would like to keep graduates here in the community, to become employed with employers here in Albany, Georgia,” said Haywood.
