(Southaven, MS) There were more than 2,000 eager job seekers at the Landers Center for DeSoto County’s Job Fair Tuesday.

Organizers told News Channel 3 companies accepted more than 5,000 resumes and held nearly 400 on-site interviews during the event which paid off for people like Tyson Sims who was hired on the spot.

“I got a job being a substitute teacher so I’m happy because it’s a new start for me,” Sims said.

The event is expected to give thousands of people jobs in DeSoto County and is part of the Mississippi Governor’s Job Fair network.
