SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Missouri Job Center saw at least 500 people walk through its doors Tuesday for the first big hiring event of the new year.
More than 400 companies in the region were represented including CoxHealth, Braums, and Silver Dollar City.
While attending the hiring event, job seekers were also able to talk to higher education officials and trade schools.
