Over 40 businesses were on hand at this year's Greenville Regional Job Fair.

The event sponsored by several groups, including the Economic Alliance, in hopes of bringing work opportunities to Delta residents.

Organizers explain how important job fairs are for the area.

Angelica Richards ,of the Washington County Economic Alliance, tells the Delta News, "The most important thing is, I say is it gives the residents of Greenville  just the opportunity to know about the local business here in our city knowing the resources that we have to offer, the different job opportunities such as the training programs that we offer at the Washington County Economic Alliance building."

We also spoke with different business owners about their experiences at the job fair.

"Well it is very important, especially in the Delta. We have this fair every year. It helps the job community especially in my area, healthcare. We come out, we get to go into the community, we help others, we help the elderly and disable. Its a great opportunity for everyone to get out and for us to employ. And I really am grateful and thankful we've been in business over 13 years and we employ so many Deltans and we just are so thankful", says Felicia Sorrels, owner of Helping Hands Care.
