Town of Dickinson, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Job seekers filled the Broome Community College Ice center Thursday for the Martin Luther King Jr. Job Fair.

Hundreds of community members and students picked up information from the 68 employers who set up shop.

Those who attended were able to learn from a variety of different companies.

Representatives from insurance companies, hospitals, clinics and financial planning businesses had booths on the floor.

"It certainly brings more of a variety of employers to the event. A lot of different opportunities so the attendees get to see what's out there in the community and hopefully get some good networking done and land some good jobs," said Larry Truillo, the director of the job placement center at BCC.

BCC has hosted job fairs every year since 1985.
