Portage County job fair attracts hundreds

PORTAGE COUNTY (WAOW) -- A job fair in Portage County attracted hundreds of people.

More than 50 businesses from around the area set up booths to talk with people looking for a job. There were opportunities in everything from manufacturing to health care. With the recent news of several businesses closing in the area, people we spoke say they appreciated this chance to meet with local businesses.

"Any opportunity to get out there and meet people face to face is better than communicating over email or by phone or something like that. Plus, it gives you the chance to network and find out more about businesses that maybe you did not consider before," said Eric Montag, job fair attendee.

The Portage County Business Council held the job fair.

Organizers say they're planning more job fairs in the future.
