How many local jobseekers came to the recent Verizon Wireless job fair?

Note to WilburTheDog (commenter)> This story got major display with a photo a week before the job fair. There's no way anyone can assert this event was not given enough advance notification. Click the link below to see that story.

A few weeks ago we featured a job fair by Verizon Wireless, looking to fill a bunch of new store positions at Spokane and North Idaho stores.

So how good a turnout did the company get during the four-hour fair? We learned this much from a company spokeswoman, Erica O'Connor:

"Verizon had 61 applicants attend their recent Spokane retail job fair. The HR team is engaging in follow-up and evaluation with hiring decisions coming soon. Employees selected from this job fair would likely begin training in July."
