Job Seekers Turn Out For Career Fair

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Dozens of job seekers turned out Monday afternoon to meet with employers looking to hire.

National Career Fairs hosted the event to give folks the opportunity to meet employers face-to-face.

In just three hours, some 500 people looking for work showed up at the Millennium Maxwell House in Nashville.

25 employers including Ashley Furniture, Aflac and Cintas Corporation were at the fair and looking to hire.

One woman who's been out of work for a year and a half now said it's hard to find a job.

"I moved here from Missouri because I couldn't get a job there, and so I'm here in Tennessee looking for a job and I've been here since April, still looking," said the woman. 

William Hall with Ashley Furniture said they're looking to hire dozens for a variety of positions at their three stores, two outlets and warehouse here in the mid-state.

The free fair also had a local career expert on hand to provide professional resume reviews.

NewsChannel 5 initially had information about another job fair planned for Tuesday. That information has turned out to be inaccurate. No career fair has been planned for the Millennium Maxwell House for Tuesday.
