The Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce held its Project Homecoming Job Fair at the mall in Johnson City.
More than 50 employers, like Lockheed Martin and Lourdes Hospital, set up camp inside the mall.
While people visited tables, handed out their resumes and talked with company representatives.
Young adults at the fair want to stay in the area, but they're running into problems.
"A lot of people, lots of people are looking for jobs and they don't pay well enough," says Ashley Ulmer of Apalachin.
"Right now its kinda tough. You know, i've been applying for a while and I haven't heard much from anybody so I came down here," says Michael Stiner of Whitney Point.
Some of the young adults at the job fair told Action News they believe there are more opportunities in other regions.
