Convergys is hiring 200 people for its call center in Hazelwood. These are entry-level jobs but with benefits, including health care.
Seven hundred people showed up. It is another sign of the tough economy. I have covered a couple of these job fairs and I am so impressed with the desire applicants have to be gainfully employed. Some have been out of work for weeks, even months, and gone on dozens of interviews. My best hopes go out to them for success. The Convergys job fair will occur for the next two weeks.
