Goodwill hosts job fair in Jonesboro

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A job opportunity presented itself to Region 8 residents Wednesday.

Goodwill held a job fair at the Parker Park Community Center.

Twenty employers set up booths to meet potential employees.

"It gives them an opportunity to talk to an employer up front instead of putting in an application and waiting for that phone call," said Heather Parsons, career services manager for Goodwill. "They get a chance to actually talk to the employer one on one, put a face with the name, learn more about the job."

Parsons said they plan on holding another job fair in the fall.
