More than 50 companies were out today to help lower the unemployment rate in Angelina County.

It was all a part of the Forest Country Job Fair Put on by the Lufkin Chamber of Commerce.        

Companies flooded the activities center at Angelina College allowing attendees to apply for jobs.

A variety of positions were on the table, such as retail, telemarketing, and sales.

 “We’re just glad to put this on,” said President and CEO of Lufkin Chamber of Commerce Jim Johnson. “We partnered with workforce solutions, and Angelina College, and put on this opportunity. That’ll allow people to know that there are companies still in our communities hiring.”
