Fewer Seekers, More Jobs at Pensacola Job Fair

Posted: Updated:
PENSACOLA, Florida -

Several hundred people crowded the Pensacola Bay Center Monday after noon looking for work. It was city's largest job fair put on by Workforce Escarosa.

There were 66 companies with openings to fill talking to job seekers. Officials say that is one of the highest number of employers they have hosted in recent years, a sign that the local economy may be making a rebound.

"I would say over the last three to four years we have had 40 to 45 maybe 48. For us to be able to get 66 employers that tells you something about the economy and that there are actually openings out there," said Susan Nelms, Workforce Escarosa Executive Director.

Employers representing healthcare, communications, retail, education, transportation, manufacturing, hospitality, correctional, accounting and more were on-site recruiting talented individuals.
