The drive thru job fair at Wheeler Field in Duluth on Wednesday afternoon featured job information from around 50 employers including Essentia, St. Luke's, different banks, and casinos, as well as homecare, and longterm care facilities.

Cars just had to drive up, and were given a bag full of job postings.

City of Duluth Director of Workforce Development Elena Foshay says it's a way to make sure people can still find jobs, regardless of how tech-savvy they are.

"We know that a lot of employers are hiring right now, and there's a lot of people who have a hard time job searching because maybe they don't have a computer at home, or don't have internet access, and so we're trying to make it low tech, easy to find out about job openings," said City of Duluth Director of Workforce Development Elena Foshay.

A complete listing of the postings will be available here.

There will also be another job fair held on Thursday in Superior at the Superior Public Library from 12:00-4:00 PM.
