"This is the first year of the expo, and the goal is to inform attendees about the law, educate them about choices and to show there are many available jobs, organizers said.

"This industry is booming," expo organizer Hillary Dulany said. "As quick as someone shows up, I can put them to work. There is a need for doctors, lawyers, secretaries, laborers and accountants. The supply (of workers) can't keep up with the demand."

On Saturday, more than 1,000 people had visited the expo at Michigan Avenue and 22nd Street, Dulany said. She said the amount of people who showed despite the day's steady rain was a surprise. Events are held inside a building and outside under tents.

"This is bigger than I anticipated," she said. "We wanted to keep it small, but word got out."
