SHARONVILLE, Ohio (AP) - There was further evidence of the increasingly challenging employment market at a job fair in southwest Ohio. The Hamilton County Park District says more than 1,000 people showed up Saturday to apply for 175 positions.
The park district is hiring boathouse cashiers and other part-time workers, as well as full-time golf professionals, in eight parks. Recruiting and benefits coordinator Lisa Curran says she noticed more middle-aged and senior citizen applicants this year.
Lori Turner, a mother of three in suburban Reading, says she's worried she'll be laid off from her job at the Macy's call center in Mason where she's worked for six months.
The Cincinnati-based company last week announced it is letting 7,000 workers go nationwide.
