GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - Over a dozen local restaurants met with potential employees now that pandemic restrictions are easing.

NCWorks hosted a restaurant job fair in uptown Greenville today. Dozens of job seekers met with owners and managers of restaurants throughout the city to explore job opportunities.

Positions available span the entire spectrum from dishwashers to hosting and serving in dining rooms. Managers said it’s been difficult to fully reopen due to staff shortages and are ready to hire quickly.

Greenville resident Harvey White met with several businesses and says he walked away with a new job offer in hand.

" I saw this as an opportunity to really get to expand my horizons. Come out here and find a job and hopefully take advantage of an opportunity that many other people are not taking advantage of,” said White.

White says he’s excited to start his new job as a restaurant host in the next few days.
