Congressman plays role in Marshall job fair

MARSHALL, TX (KLTV) - MARSHALL, TX (KLTV) - East Texans got the opportunity to network for jobs Wednesday.

In Marshall at East Texas Baptist University, the Texas Workforce Commission and Congressman Louie Gohmert held the third in a series of job fairs in East Texas.

More than 60 employers looking to hire new employees met job seekers.

Congressman Gohmert says these events are needed because a lot of people are hurting in East Texas

"When I realized that by using our office, we could get more people together who needed people to work for them, and people coming who needed jobs, then I said we got to do that," said Gohmert.

If you didn't make this job fair, there is another one set for July, 8th at Steven F. Austin University in Nacogdoches.
