A few hundred people who already have jobs are expected to attend a job fair in Sacramento Tuesday.

Organizers of this job fair say it's focused on people who already have careers.

"It could be the 15-20 years of experience professional," says Dan Sparks with HireLive. "Majority of the candidates are currently employed looking for maybe a change of career."

HireLive produces large hiring events in more than 40 cities throughout the country.

Only 48 percent of Americans are satisfied with their jobs, according to the most recent survey by the Conference Board. The business research group says inadequate compensation continues to disappoint most workers.

Sparks says job fairs are still in demand, even though the Sacramento area unemployment rate is down to 5.5 percent.

"With it going down obviously it makes it more challenging for employers to find qualified candidates," says Sparks. "So they do need our services."

And with fewer Americans satisfied with their current jobs, people looking for career alternatives need those services too.

Tomorrow's job fair will be at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Sacramento from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
