October 28, 2013 14:40 IST

JobAs part of its effort to find jobs for unemployed professionals, the Indian-American Community Services organised a job fair here this week which attracted participation from many top companies.

The Job fair attracted many large companies such as W W Grainger, Allstate, PepsiCo, Tech Mahindra, L&T Infotech and L&T Technologies, who were the corporate sponsors.

In total, 50 companies participated in the job fair including, Dover, ITW, Alcatel-Lucent, Morgan Stanley, CME Group, Nokia, Morningstar and Hospira.

"At first I thought this job fair is only for Indian community and IT and Software Engineers but I found out that this is open for all, I am very impressed with the recruiting companies and the level of professionalism and organisation of the event," said Diana Mendoza, an attendee of the job fair.

IACS president Sreenivas Katragadda said, next year the organisation hopes to expand the event at the national level by taking the job fair to more cities around the US.
