BINGHAMTON, NY – Job seekers got a chance to consider some potential careers while taking in a ball game yesterday evening.
Broome-Tioga Workforce New York partnered with the Greater Binghamton Chamber to host a Grand Slam Job Fair at Mirabito Stadium prior to the Rumble Ponies game.
50 employers offered jobs ranging from manufacturing and health care to military, engineering, and more.

Murphy says there was over 1,000 job openings available.
A second job fair will take place at Mirabito Stadium tomorrow evening between 4:30 and 6:30.
