Job fair draws a crowd


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC)--  We've heard about improving unemployment numbers in the state. Wednesday employers were out in Rochester looking for new workers to fill open positions.

The Workforce Center was host to a job fair. From fast food and hotels to retail outlets 20 employers from Rochester and Zumbrota were there as hundreds of people made their rounds.

Anyone from college students to job market veterans of 20 or more years were there to see what the fair had and what connections could be made.

Bruce Thompson with the Workforce center says employers are searching for that right person, "Typically for these events employers come 10 minutes ahead. They started showing up an hour, which indicates to me they're really seriously looking for workers and that's a good thing for the people coming in."

If you are attending one of these fairs, employers say to dress like you would in an interview and if possible bring a resume.

Each spring and fall the Workforce center does three separate sector-based job fairs. They plan to have their next one toward the end of March.

Here is a link to upcoming job or career fairs around the state of Minnesota.
