  1. Is Richmond Standard considering completing a follow-up story to this outlying how many residents were notified in advance, how many actually attended and how many ended up getting jobs? It would be a very good read and give a sense of the motivation of unemployed Richmond residents as well as gauge the success of the career fair.
