ST. LUCIE COUNTY -- Hundreds of job seekers traveled to the Havert L. Fenn Center in Fort Pierce on Wednesday on April 17 for the Spring Job Fair.

By 11 a.m., the line for people getting into the fair snaked down the long hallway running next to the gymnasium, where the fair was being conducted.

"The turnout was fantastic," said Odaly Victorio, the communication coordinator for Workforce Solutions.

According to Ms. Victorio, more than 500 people were waiting for the event doors to open to be the first to take advantage of the 89 employers from St. Lucie, Indian River, Martin and Okeechobee counties who are waiting to talk to them.

A number of businesses from all over the Treasure Coast had representatives at the event, including the Fort Pierce Police Department, the city of Port St. Lucie, St. Lucie County, Indian River State College and the St. Lucie County School Board.

In addition to the employer booths, there were also two sessions to show potential employees how to write a successful resume and learning tips on having a successful interview.

Another job fair is planned for the fall, but for now, Ms. Victorio says all the employers have information on the Workforce Solutions website.

Workforce Solutions is a private, nonprofit organization that helps area businesses, job seekers and economic development.

To learn more about jobs available on the Treasure Coast, call (866) 482-4473 or go online to www.yourworkforcesolutions.com.
