Hundreds of people take advantage of a job fair at Heartland Community College for former Mitsubishi workers. Several businesses had booths up in the Jon Astroth Center, including NDE/NDT Solutions. Jeff Gaines is with the metal safety company, he says folks who are willing to travel and learn could find a new career with the company.

Gaines says skills on the line at the auto assembly plant may give Mitsubishi workers a leg up on others because of their metal working backgrounds. Gaines says some people from the Mitsubishi quality control department have already made serious inquiries.
