Lynchburg, VA - Hundreds showed up at the Liberty Mountain Conference Center in Lynchburg MondaY in search of a job.
Congressmen Bob Goodlatte and Robert Hurt are hosting the job fair.
More than 70 local businesses are there to meet with jobseekers. Experts are on hand to help with resumes, interview preparation, and provide job seeking tips.
Hurt says the recent unemployment numbers make events like this so important.
"It shows that people are still hurting and it's our hope that this will be useful to people and helpful to people and will help get people jobs," he said.
If you'd like to stop by and drop off your resume, the fair will be on until 2 p.m.
