DETROIT (WWJ) – It’s a chance for work Tuesday at a big job fair in downtown Detroit.

Congressman Hansen Clarke says the job fair is part of the Congressional Black Caucus’ “For the People” jobs initiative and will have employers ready to hire. His best advice: come prepared.

“We’re gonna have a bunch of employers who are ready to hire people. We’re gonna have job training and resume building workshops, so people can be in the best position possible to get a job and be qualified for a job.”

The job fair takes place at the Wayne County Community College District’s downtown campus on Fort Street between 9am and 5pm.
