MEMPHIS, TN -

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - Mid-South businesses with current openings looked for applicants at a job fair Thursday.

Memphis Hires organized the fair, allowing applicants to network with employers that included AFLAC, Dollar General, Kelly Services, and Shoemaker financial.

A career expert was also on hand to provide free professional resume review.

"It's tough just finding a job," job-seeker Darren Dentley said. "I mean, on a daily basis, you can get up on a Monday, get up on a Friday, end up putting in 20 or 30 applications, (and get) no calls."
