Job Seekers Strike Gold At Biloxi Job Fair

People looking for work found a gold mine of opportunities in Biloxi on Tuesday.More than 160 employers from across the country set up booths at the Southern Region Military and Civilian Job Fair in Biloxi. Job seekers could submit applications to potential employers ranging from computers companies to law enforcement. Somࡡ of the employers even conducted on site interviews. Organizers say seeing so many employers looking to hire is a welcome sight during this economic slowdown.

Job fair director Joe Buckner said "I think its a good sign. If you look at the companies we have here and the fact that they are hiring. They are not here for show.They are actually making their job opportunities available to those people that are unemployed."

Organizers of the job fair say they expect several hundred people to be offered jobs.
