The Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce held its annual Project Homecoming career fair. About 45 employers were meeting potential candidates and discussing available positions. Roughly 600 resumes are submitted each year by people looking for a new opportunity.

The fair is scheduled this time of year in the hopes of luring back young professionals who are visiting home for the holidays. Chamber Board Chairman Jim Lewis says companies want to hire.

"Depending on your skill set, there are jobs available here. I think a lot of times people think that there are no jobs here, but there are. And I think that's why we have this kind of project," said Lewis.

Participating employers can access an online database made up of all the resumes submitted during today's fair.
