HAZARD, Ky (WYMT) - Folks with the Eastern Kentucky Concentrated Employment Program tell WYMT Tuesday's job fair was anything but ordinary.

The mega job fair included 45 different employers. It happened in Hazard at the Kentucky Career Center Job Sight from 10:00 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Organizers Michael Cornett said almost 300 people attended the event, mainly because folks are being hired immediately.

"We need to present people with hope and opportunity. We cannot guarantee them a job but we can guarantee them that we are going to try very hard to bring about these opportunities to have these kind of events," said Cornett.

Two more job fairs are scheduled in Hazard for early September
