Congressman Lacy Clay's 7th Annual Career Fair at Harris-Stowe State University surpassed all previous records for attendance and employer participation. By noon, five thousand guests had come through the doors. And streams of eager job seekers arrived throughout the afternoon to visit the 105 employers from across the region and the nation.

"The amazing response from across our community was remarkable," said the Congressman. "Over five thousand attendees came through our doors and they were ready to go to work. My number one priority is to help put my constituents back to work and to connect them with job opportunities that they could not take advantage of by themselves."

In remarks to kick off the 2012 Career Fair, Congressman Clay said, "Having a job means that you can look in the mirror and know that you can provide for your family. It means that you can start building a future. It means restoring the dignity of work to those who have been unemployed for too long.We accomplished that today in a big way, and I am very proud to have helped so many good people."

Congressman Clay's 7th Annual Career Fair was presented with the invaluable help and support of Harris-Stowe State University and all of our outstanding vendor partners. We thank them for their participation and we look forward to Career Fair "2013.
