"Embracing your differences and using that as an asset," Workforce Solutions spokesperson Michelle Castrow said. "This company is looking for people who speak languages like Punjabi, Nepali, Ukrainian, Russian, Farsi, and Vietnamese."

The job fair was streamed live in the video player of this article, but you can go back and watch it on our streaming app for ROKU, Fire and Apple TV.

During the half hour event, Workforce Solutions recruiters took calls, emails and messages to line up interviews.

"If you meet all of those qualifications, that Workforce Solutions recruiter is going to connect you with an interview with that employer," Castrow explained. "That could happen as early as the beginning of next week."

If you're not looking for a job in the Gandhi District, experts say you can still apply the same philosophy in other areas.
