Job seekers pack Soldier Field

CHICAGO More than 4,000 people were at the "Chicago Tribune" career fair, which was presented by Career Builder. They had a chance to show off their resumes to more than 50 exhibitors.

"Overall, a good selection of different companies. And very crowded," said Ross Kimmey, job seeker.

"I've been looking as most people know, the market is kind of down right now. But there are things out there," said Larry Mathis, job seeker.

"I came out without a job but I did come out with plenty of opportunities, business cards, networking. New experiences," said Donald Thomas, job seeker.

Companies specializing in engineering, technology, and security clearance, nursing, health care, banks, and even cruise lines were represented at the fair.
