WINSTON-SALEM, NC (AP) -- Caterpillar Inc. says its first job fair for a new manufacturing plant in Winston-Salem was a huge success. The Winston-Salem Journal reported that 2,500 people turned out for the event at Forsyth Technical Community College on Tuesday. The job hopefuls dropped off resumes and briefly meet with plant managers. The applicants were also directed to the company web site to post profiles. Caterpillar plans to open the $426 million plant later this year or early next year. About 400 employees will be hired for the plant. Forsyth Tech officials have estimated there will be at least 10 applicants for every Caterpillar job opening. Caterpillar plans a second job fair in July. (Copyright 2011 by The Associated Press.
