Hundreds of people looking for work did so today without even leaving their cars.
A drive through jobs fair was held in the parking lot of the Comfort Inn Suites near 72nd & Grover Wednesday. Organizers have been handing out job packets for hours to potential employees.
Organizer Clay Seaman of Omaha Jobs said he passed out about 1,500 job packets. He said it's a quick and user-friendly way to get the word out on potential jobs.
“This is a good way where they would provide me with their job postings I stick them in a bag and job seekers just pull up and I hand them the bag and they just go through the postings and respond to the ads.”
Seaman plans to have more drive thru job fairs in the future.
Wednesday's event was sponsored by Omahajobs.com.
