MESA COUNTY, Colo. (KKCO) As the economy slowly continues to recover, Mesa County residents are still searching for jobs, and now they're becoming available.

Tuesday the Mesa County Workforce Center hosted its second job fair of the year.

More than 600 job-seekers went out to meet with thirty employers ranging from Wendy's to the Colorado State Patrol.

"We had over 100 veterans that attended the first hour," says Workforce Center Business Manager, Suzie Miller. "That gave them some specialized time with the employers and I think the employers appreciated that too because they want to show their support."

Officials with the workforce center say they are encouraged by the number of employers and job seekers who attended today's event.

Miller says it is a good sign we are moving in the right direction.
