Preston Dockery of Matteson, center, waits in line for the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) job fair at Chicago State University's Jones Convocation Center in Chicago. He came to a job fair last year and didn't bring water or a chair so this year he came prepared. They are looking for part-time bus operators (PTBOs) related to the 2013 Red Line South track renewal project. CTA expects to hire as many as 400 part time bus operators to drive buses during the project. Once hired, these bus operators will have a permanent position at CTA and will remain a part of the CTA workforce once the track renewal project ends. The fair is the first in a series of three community job fairs on Chicago's South Side.
