Job fair success in Fulton

Staff report

More than 550 people attended the Kayser Automotive Systems job fair Tuesday in Fulton. Of the applications received, 391 met the advertised requirement of three years of assembly manufacturing experience.

"We're overwhelmed with the number of qualified applications; it's a good problem to have," said Paul Ankenbrand, chief operating officer for Kayser. "We have already started reviewing the applications and will start referring individuals to the next step in our hiring process."

"The people who came out today weren't just here to fill out an application," said Eddie Crittendon, executive director of the Fulton County/Hickman County Economic Development Partnership. "These were skilled individuals ready to go to work and commit to a company that is willing to invest in their workforce.

"Nothing demonstrates the quality of our workforce better than that stack of applications â “ the hundreds of applications from people who meet the job position requirements," said Crittendon. "No longer can people doubt the quality of the workforce in Fulton County. Because they're here and they're ready to go to work."
