Halliburton Job Fair Wraps Up

It's a job fair that is opening the application process to whoever wants a position at a new Halliburton facility set to open here in eastern Kentucky.

There are 150 positions, but many more than that hoping to get one.

Company officials are excited, but overwhelmed at the response.

So many people want to work for Halliburton.

Executives had to extend the job fair hours just so everyone interested could apply.

Hundreds came to the fair in Prestonsburg on Tuesday, at least 200 people showed up before one o'clock and several hundred applied last week at job fairs in Pikeville and Prestonsburg.

Less than half the applicants will be hired.

Halliburton only has 150 positions available, but with starting salaries ranging from 35 to 52
thousand dollars a year with health benefits, a lot of eastern Kentuckians want those jobs.

Halliburton managers are already whittling down the list of applicants of who they're interested in because work starts in just a few weeks, but it isn't too late to apply.

Halliburton managers are holding their last job fair Wednesday in Louisa.
