ATLANTA (CBS46) -

School is almost out and more than 40 big time companies are looking to hire. It's part of Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms 100 thousand initiative.

Initially the City of Atlanta was anticipating three thousand young people to attend but more than five thousand people registered to be at the event Thursday. They handed out blazers, did interview training and even hired people on the spot.

CBS46 reporter Aiyana Cristal spoke to several young people who said they felt inspired leaving the job fair and they were thankful for the opportunity.
