WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — With the holiday season right around the corner, stores everywhere are looking to bring in some extra help.
Today, the Independence Mall found that help thanks to a holiday job fair.
More than 200 people stopped by the holiday job fair to apply for mall positions this afternoon at the Independence Mall here in Wilmington.
Justice, JC Penny and Forever 21 are among the stores that are offering positions for the holiday season.
Applicants like Lydia Manning came in to apply and hopefully land a new job.
“There’s people that are hiring and I’d like to let them know that I exist and would like to work with them,” said Manning, “I do not have a job and I need one.”
There were more than 200 positions that were made available by stores at the fair today.
The job fair was a way for people to come in, get a new job and make some extra cash this holiday season.
If you missed the job fair today, you can reach out to the companies personally.
