WATERLOO (KWWL) -

More than 340 people looking for work attended a job fair in Waterloo Thursday.  The fair provided on-the-spot interviews for manufacturing positions and was targeted toward workers from John Deere who were laid off in October.

Jason Staker with Hawkeye Community College says 30 employers attended.  Many said they left with 10 to 15 applications of qualified candidates. One employer said he left with 10 applications of people he will definitely hire.

The jobs are manufacturing positions such as production, assembly, painting, machining, industrial maintenance, forklift, and warehouse operations.
