Hundreds show at WAFB Job fair at the River Center

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Hundreds of people brought resumes for WAFB's Jobline Career Fair and met various employers for possible employment opportunities.

It happened on Wednesday, April 9th where more than 30 employers were on hand, trying to find the perfect candidate.

Calvin Ray, who heads up the company Republic, says he has seen big success each year from Jobline's Career Fair.

"Oh, absolutely! Every year I've been in the Baton Rouge market," said Ray, "and I've been in the market for 5 years now, we've had great success in hiring. We've probably hired 6 or 7 strong candidates out of this job fair."

Attendance numbers were way up this year.
