Federal job fair lures 1,000 in downtown Atlanta

ATLANTA (AP) - Police say more than 2,000 people lined up around
the Sam Nunn Atlanta Federal Center in downtown for a federal job
fair.

About two dozen federal agencies offered information and fliers
at the job fair on Wednesday.

Atlanta police estimated the crowd numbered at least 2,000. It
snaked around the city block surrounding the building.

No hiring or interviewing took place, and officials could not
say how many jobs are available.

The Atlanta Federal Executive Board helped organize the job
fair. The agency's executive director, Gwendolyn Campbell, walked
down the line to tell people waiting that the fair would close by 2
p.m. and they might not get in.

She says the agency likely will plan another fair because of the
large turnout.
