WISCONSIN RAPIDS (WAOW) -
Hundreds of job seekers headed to Mid State Technical College in Wisconsin Rapids.
The school held its annual job fair Thursday and coordinators say the turnout was better than expected.
According to the latest jobs report, businesses across the country continued to hire new workers in August.
Employers from all over Wisconsin attended the job fair.
From Madison to Green Bay, employers were looking for workers.
The job seekers included students and people of all ages.
57 employers set up booths in the gymnasium on Mid State Tech's campus.
Organizers tell Newsline 9 that it's the most booths they've had for the fall fair in several years.
"This past spring we had 58, this time we have 57, which is very encouraging and I've done this for a number of years and in the fall it's usually pretty small, but this is our best fall in over seven years," said Stephany Hartman, Career Services employee with Mid State Technical College.
Mid State Technical College holds two job fairs per year.
School leaders say the next one is in April of 2014.
