Employment expo held in Eau Claire


EAU CLAIRE - A potentially good sign for the local job market as an employment expo was held Thursday in Eau Claire.

Over 40 different employers from a variety of industries set up at Hobbs Ice Center to meet with job seekers. From skilled trades to office work, health care and customer service, every business on hand either had positions to fill, or would in the very near future.

Amber Hoffman, an Employment Training Specialist from the Department of Workforce Development said, "There are a lot of jobs out there. You might have to start at the beginning and work your way up, but there is a lot of jobs out there now, and employers are hiring, especially this time of the year is when employers are going to do their hiring."

There were a lot of job seekers filling out applications, and there were also some interviews being conducted at the expo.
