DUNCAN — Area residents looking for a job will have the opportunity to visit with Stephens County employers during a job fair Friday.
The fair will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Simmons Center, 800 Chisholm Trail Parkway, Duncan.
During the event job seekers can speak directly with employers about available jobs and fill out applications. Some companies are even planning to interview, hire on site, and offer signing bonuses. Some of the companies planning to attend include Halliburton Manufacturing and Field Camp, Express Employment, Gore Nitrogen, Stephens County Jail, Farmers Insurance, Elara Caring, NOV Wilco, The Territory Golf & Country Club, Think Ability, Oklahoma Employment Security Commission (Veteran Services) and others.
“Those looking for a job are able to meet with multiple employers at one time during the job fair,” shared Lyle Roggow, president and CEO of the Duncan Area Economic Development Foundation. “The need to fill jobs is high and we will continue supporting employers by hosting events to bring job seekers and employers together. Providing a single location for employers to find talent and for individuals seeking employment has simplified the process.”
The job fair is free for jobseekers and open to the public.
If a jobseeker is unable to attend the event, they can provide their information on the Duncan Area Job Board and it will be shared with employers. https://ok-duncan.com/workforce/jobs-board/
