Jerome Bryant came to the Pompano Beach Job Fair hoping to find work in the construction industry.
He submitted applications to six of the construction companies that participated in the event.
"I have about 20 years of experience in the building industry. I need work and I believe there are some good opportunities here. I think I will find a job soon," said Bryant.
Stanley Holt wants a better opportunity in the construction industry. "I have about 15 years of experience as a carpenter and I can do some electrical work. More jobs are opening in the construction industry and I hope to find something better than what I am doing now," said Holt.
Susan Kores, who ran the event for Pompano Beach said the job fair was geared to the construction industry but other employers came. "This is good for the community. We received a good turnout and this will help people find new jobs," said Kores.
