MADISON (WKOW) -- The Urban League of Greater Madison hosted its first job extravaganza career fair in Elver Park. 

Nearly 30 employers were there representing a wide range of industries and job types.

The Urban League is hosting the event as part of its growing partnership with the city of Madison to bring more employment and training services to the Park Ridge and surrounding South Madison neighborhoods. 

"I'm getting more employers that can't fill their quotas," said Michelle Bozeman of the Urban League of Greater Madison. "What I'm seeing is a lot of employers aren't having qualified candidates, however we at the Urban League and the Park Ridge Employment Training Center what we do is help get those barriers down."

There was no cost for job seekers to attend.

The Urban League of Greater Madison's mission is to ensure that African Americans and other community members are educated, employed, and empowered to live well and advance professionally.
