Meridian, Miss. Ideal Software Systems of Meridian hosted a job fair Tuesday evening looking for people to fill new positions.
Applicants came and took a test to find out their book knowledge, and they also gave verbal resumes in an informal setting about their backgrounds. More than 50 people applied at Ideal's headquarters in Meridian for positions for quality assurance testing and technical support.
"We're blown away by both the quantity of people that we've had come and also the quality of people. We are very impressed with the turnout that we've had in both of those regards," said David Goldman, president of the company.
Goldman says the company added a lot of new customers in the past year, and it is hiring these positions to fill that demand. Goldman founded Ideal Software Systems in 1983, so the company is marking its 30th anniversary this year.
