Youth Job Fair

For those without a job, finding one can be a tough task, but Saturday that process was made a little easier.

Workforce Plus teamed up with other organizations in the Tallahassee community for the Second Annual Youth Expo. More than 400 people came out to get help in finding a job.

Organizers said this year the job fair was a big success.

Derrick Blanton is a student seeking assistance. He said, "I think it's beneficial because you have a lot of resources here and a lot of people to show you how to get a job, rather then going door to door."

Kimberly Moore with Workforce Plus added, "They are our workforce, the next generation, and if we do not put that emphasis on it early on there will be problems moving forward, so it's our role as a community, especially as a workforce board, to do activities just like this."

Several potential employers joined with educational institutes to help the young job seekers. Organizers said they want to create options and help the students with career choices.
