In Wednesday's edition of hitting home we went to to Craven County, a county hit hard by recent layoffs, and job cuts.
The job link center says the county's unemployment rate has doubled since last year. It now stands at 10 percent.
Hundreds of county residents are without a job, many of them a product of layoffs at big corporations like Hatteras Yachts in New Bern.
We caught up with two job seekers, as they search long and hard for employment, and why they should be hired.
Contact information for job seekers in Wednesday's piece.
