Chippewa Valley Employment Expo connects job seekers with employers

Eau Claire (WQOW) - Area job seekers were given a chance to meet potential employers face to face today.

Nearly 60 companies participated in the 18th annual Chippewa Valley Employment Expo. That is up from the 40 companies that took part last year.   Job seekers were able to fill out applications and, in some cases, be interviewed right on the spot, which organizers say is a good sign for the Eau Claire economy.

"A lot more employers are hiring right now. I've talked to them on the phone, my co-workers have talked to them and they all say they're hiring right now and would love to have more job seekers come through," Amber Hoffman, an employee training specialist says.

Organizers aren't able to tell us how many job opportunities or interviews were secured by today's expo but they did say many employers were pleased with the number of applicants.
