Job Seekers Turn Out at Bedford Fair

Bedford, VA - More than 30 employers were represented at a job fair Wednesday in Bedford.

The Bedford Area Chamber of Commerce hosted the event at the CVCC Bedford Campus.

"This is a true job fair. The folks who are here are actively hiring and have openings, instead of a career fair where you're just coming to hear about the opportunities in the area," said Susan Martin, President of the Bedford Area Chamber of Commerce.

People looking for work could also go to workshops on things like resume building and interview techniques.

Congressman Robert Hurt was there for a business roundtable discussion.
