TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - More than 1,500 people attended Wednesday's job fair at the BancorpSouth Conference Center.
The job fair was sponsored by WTVA and WLOV.
Vendors were able to hire applicants on the spot.
Denise Martin, a hiring manager, was looking to hire correctional officers for the Marshall County Correctional Facility in Holly Springs. She saw many applicants Wednesday.
"They actually have come prepared," she said. "They have their resumes. I'm able to look up and review their resumes and talk with them about their experience. So, I didn't have to do a lot of digging. They came really prepared."
If you missed the job fair, WTVA and WLOV will sponsor another fair in June.
