A business with several different companies holds its first ever career fair.
Asbell companies based in Carl Junction operates seven different businesses and already employs 220 people.
But director of human resources Amy O’brien, says they need about 40 more workers.
She says Asbell has never had to hold an event like this, but she says the construction industry has never experienced this kind of an employee shortage.
“Yes, it’s definitely a sign of the times, we have a shortage of workers and a lot of advancement opportunities and a lot of opportunity out there” said Amy O’brien, Asbell Companies H.R. Director.
