Employment Expo links up employers with potential employees

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)-  The Mall at Turtle Creek was filled with more than shoppers Thursday.

The Region 8 Job Link Employment Expo was created an opportunity for job hunters and potential employers to meet face to face.

Human Resources Manager for Lowe's, Deborah Smith, said the Expo is a great opportunity for businesses and job seekers alike. "It's exposed us to people we wouldn't normally be able to reach out to and has given candidates an opportunity to come and talk to us, too," Smith said.
