Hundreds of job seekers from Tioga County flocked to Owego today for the 2nd Annual County job fair.

The fair, held at the Owego Treadway Inn, featured 80 employers, all of them with positions to fill. Job seekers got to network with potential employers. Those companies covered a broad spectrum of occupations from jobs in the insurance industry to military service.

"Our unemployment rate decreased by 1.1% last year, so I would say this kind of job fair is very effective." said Marte Saubery, Chairwoman for the Tioga County Legislature
