Dozens of job seekers are camping out in Queens on Sunday night, hoping to be among a handful of newly hired employees.

A temporary tent city has been erected in Long Island City outside the International Association of Heat & Frost Insulators & Allied Trades Local Union #12 headquarters.

It's an annual gathering of job seekers.

Although hundreds usually apply, there are only about a dozen jobs available.

People set up camp early in order to be one of the first to receive an application on Monday.
