MILWAUKEE - As a sign of the times, thousands turned out for a job fair in Milwaukee Saturday.

So many people showed up to apply for a job with Milwaukee public schools in fact, the district ran out of job applications.

District officials at the event, which was held at Harold Vincent High School, say they're looking to hire about 700 teachers for the upcoming school year. 

Karen Jackson with MPS estimates that's how many vacancies they'll have due to a combination of retirements and resignations.
