More than 1,600 people attended the recent jobs, skills and training fair in Marsh Farm.
Held at Futures House in The Moakes, employers and training providers were on hand to fill job vacancies and offer free advice to visitors.
Residents were also able to take part in CV workshops, talk about their career choices as well as finding out what skills training, recruitment and apprenticeship opportunities were available to them.
The fair is part of a series of initiatives from the authority’s Economic Development team to help economic growth in the town.
Abu Nasir, officer lead on the Council’s Skills and Employability strategy, said: “We want Luton to make the best possible use of its considerable assets and opportunities, particularly in today’s financial climate.
“We want to ensure this is a town where people develop, grow and prosper.”
Feedback gathered after the event showed that eighty per cent of visitors felt the fair helped their chances of getting a job. The scheme was organised by Luton Borough Council with Job Centre Plus and Marsh Farm Futures.
