Registration for a job fair to work at the new nano technology facility in Utica had to be cut off several days early because there was too much demand for the 300 open positions.

The job fair for the QUAD-C computer chip center on the campus of the SUNY Institute of Technology is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon. But after 1,500 people had registered by Thursday, organizers cut it off.

The computer chip manufacturer GlobalFoundries has announced that it will move forward with plans to construct a $2 billion research and development center in Saratoga County.
