RENO, Nev. (AP) - Hundreds of students lined up in Reno at a jobs fair at the University of Nevada for a shot at an internship with electric-car maker Tesla Motors.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports Tesla’s booth was (https://tinyurl.com/oxmho4r) by far the busiest at Wednesday’s career fair that featured more than 49 employers, ranging ranged from the Reno Aces, to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and Montreux Golf & Country Club.

Some of the more than 300 students waited in line for three hours to make their brief pitch to Tesla.

The company has started building a giant lithium battery factory it calls a gigafactory about 15 miles east of Sparks.

Tesla college recruiter Tony Sciarra says they came across a few promising candidates and encouraged most of the students to apply online.
