Hundreds of job seekers had a chance to meet with hiring managers at the Benteler job fair at BPCC.
Managers held informational meetings for the candidates.
Job openings, salaries and benefits were discussed.
Rhonda Simmons, Benteler's Human Resources Manager, says they've already gotten numerous applications online.
"We've already had a lot of applications from just announcing it this week and we're expecting a lot more," Simmons said "We had a good turn out and we think we've got a lot of the skills we're looking for too."
Benteler is looking for many different positions and would like some experience in metal working or machinery but they are willing to train.
The job pool is still open and you can apply online at www.BentelerJobsInLouisiana.com
