At a time when big city daily's are folding across the country, when even the Chicago Tribune is bankrupt -- we found a local newspaper that's actually looking to hire!

"Reflejos" is a mostly-Spanish-language weekly newspaper for suburban Chicago's growing Hispanic community. They're looking for translators and free-lance writers and put out the call at a very crowded job fair in downtown Chicago on Wednesday.

Twenty-five major employers were there -- from AT&T to the U.S. Secret Service -- looking to fill hundreds of positions.

And this year, they had a big pool to choose from. Last year, about 1,000 people attended the city career fair.

This year, organizers say more than 5,000 showed up.
