Area residents looking for a job will have the opportunity to visit with Stephens County employers during a job fair taking place next week.
The job fair, hosted by Duncan Area Economic Development Foundation (DAEDF), will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 21 at the Simmons Center and is free for jobseekers and open to the public.
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, Southern Machine Works, Blue Arc Energy, NOV Wilco, Duncan Regional Hospital and others, according to Lyle Roggow, President and CEO for DAEDF.
“If people are looking for a job, this is a great way to meet with multiple employers at one time,” Roggow said. “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 Simmons Center is located at Chisholm Trail Parkway, Duncan, Oklahoma.
