LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Anyone looking for a job will get help on Wednesday from Bluegrass Community and Technical College. The Leestown campus of BCTC is hosting a job fair. Officials say as many as 1,400 jobs could be filled thanks to the job fair in fields such as manufacturing, information technology, banking and engineering. The jobs could pay up to $40 an hour.
"To me, it says the economy is getting better because employers are hiring," says Paula Barnes with Bluegrass Workforce Investment. "Up to this point they may hire here or there, but I've got employers that want to hire between 10 to 100 people."
The job fair is from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. The Leestown Road campus of BCTC is on Opportunity Way. There's no admission fee. The event is open to everyone.
