    Job seekers are invited to attend a free career fair in the D.C. area on May 17 for positions that will be available across different industries.

    The National Career Fair will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Lincoln Hall Ballroom at the DoubleTree Crystal City, 300 Army Navy Dr. in Arlington, Virginia.

    The U.S. Customs and Border Protection, New Horizons Computer Learning Centers, U.S. Army, three Cumulus radio stations and Bray and Scarff Appliance and Kitchen Specialists are among the companies expected to attend.

    "Careers represented generally include sales, customer service, accounting, banking, finance, administrative, insurance, restaurant retail and more," said career fair spokes woman Rachelle Littlefield. "Job opportunities are based on the hiring needs of attending employers."

    As teachers in other parts of the country take a stand for higher pay, News4's Chris Gordon takes a look at teacher pay in the D.C. area. A Frederick County teacher said he works a second job, and sometimes a third job, to make ends meet. It's hard to keep his job when pay is thousands of dollars higher in nearby school districts, he said.
