(WDEF) Hundreds of applicants turned out Wednesday to try to get one of the new jobs at Convergys.
People lined up outside of the Contact Center on Brainerd Road early in the morning.
That's because Convergys needs to fill the nearly 500 new jobs it's bringing to Chattanooga.
Officials were looking for people to handle customer service sales calls.
Senior Regional Recruiting Manager Heather Burks said, "This on site job fair is not something that we do regularly, but at this time due to the increase in the positions, felt that this was the best way to get the Chattanooga applicants into our site for those immediate opportunities."
Company officials asked all applicants to apply online before coming to today's fair.
