challenges facing long-term unemployed (LTU) people and strategies for
addressing these issues in an effort to help the unemployed get back to work.

Bluegrass Cellular, headquartered in Elizabethtown, attended the think tank
event and is an employer that has signed up to host a booth.
Cellular is thrilled to have access to candidates for our 17 locations in one
place,” she said. “We will be sitting at our desk, not travelling to a remote
site; responding to questions on all of our openings, not just one location;
and multiple hiring managers will be available simultaneously to make crucial
hiring decisions. Long-term unemployed applicants are in demand since they
value benefits which others may take for granted.”
