Broyhill Civic Center in Lenoir.  “Caldwell is Hiring” was held under the auspices of Caldwell Community College & Technical Institute.  Caldwell Economic Development Vice-chair William Howard III told job seekers at the orientation that it often takes 30 to 60 days for employment to happen after such a job fair, but some 85 reported they were hired on the spot.
