Homecoming Job Fair
Updated: Friday, January 4 2013, 12:59 PM EST
Hundreds of jobs are up for grabs. 85 employers set up booths in the Biltmore Square Mall Thursday to talk with applicants. Some of the workers have been looking for work for months. There are also people coming into the job market for the first time since the economy crashed in 2008.
Teresa Jones says she's hopeful her applications will win her a job after spending time raising her two children. She's banking on her previous experience in the health care field and training she's now receiving at school.
The job fair runs through 3 p.m. Thursday.
