More than 3,000 people showed up for the Congressional Black Caucus’  “For the People” Jobs Initiative at Atlanta Technical College Thursday.

The “For the People” Jobs Initiative is a five-city tour, and launched in Cleveland, Ohio August 8th.

According to TheGrio.com, the Atlanta job fair featured help finding work with the federal government, GI Bill and veterans’ job training, help for job seekers over age 55, and advice on interviewing, along with offering direct contact with potential employers.

Thursday’s event took place in 90-plus degree Atlanta temperatures, and some job seekers fainted as they waited in lines that wrapped around the building in the early hours of the job fair, hoping to talk to the more than 90 employers who signed up for the event.
