SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- With thousands of people out of a job, a job fair in Sevier County Thursday helped people find places hiring.

It's a time of year when seasonal work shifts more to retail for the holiday shopping season. And that's why Senator Doug Overbey says this is a great time to help people find work.

"This is a great time to give folks who are looking for a job an opportunity to meet with employers and submit an application," said Senator Doug Overbey.

More than 100 jobs were available through the employers present at the job fair on Thursday.
