3,000 job seekers for 50 jobs

Posted: Updated:

3,000 people turned out for a job fair in Talladega. Each is hoping to be one of 50 people hired by year's end at auto supplier M-Tek.

The Talladega Career Center hosted the fair and reports never seeing so many people for a job event. Organizers ran out of 1,000 job applications by lunchtime.

M-Tek expects another hiring round in March. By 2014, 200 people will be working at the facility.
