More than 40 companies set up booths and help wanted signs today at Steinbrenner Field. Hundreds of job seekers showed up looking for work. We went in search of real jobs for real people. Here is what we found.

The positions varied as much as the people applying for them. We found companies hiring for everything from hospitality and health care workers to truckers and dispatchers.

The trucking company Reed TMS logistics starts operations support workers at 17 dollars an hour no experience necessary.

Crown Automotive Group is looking to fill more than 20 positions. Openings include everything from lot porters and car washers to service technicians and sales people. Entry level positions start at 13 an hour and go up to 30 dollars an hour for service technicians.

You know the guys you see on the street corner spinning signs? They make up to 15 dollars an hour. Plenty of energy but no experience necessary.

And we met Troops to Teachers. They provide counseling services and financial benefits to go into teaching. The non-profit pays to train veterans to become teachers.

If you didn't make it to the job news job fair you can find more information about all of the companies online.
