NRV job fair hosts 50 companies

PULASKI COUNTY, VA -

Job-seekers in the New River Valley had a great opportunity to meet face to face with employers today.

The annual NRV Job Fair Expo was held at New River Community College in Dublin.

About fifty companies from a variety of fields were on hand to greet about 300 potential employees.

Some employers were even conducting on the spot interviews.

"You never have that opportunity. So this is why it's so exciting, because people actually get to talk to somebody," said Marty Holliday.

 This year's expo was also a certified "Virginia Green" event which helps encourage environmentally sound practices throughout the state.
