Oil jobs were flowing at the annual Fall Job Fair, with a line of companies that included Halliburton, Sunoco Logistics, Nuverra, MBI, Purity Oil, E & M Energy Services and more all saying they are seeing steady growth and need more people.
“The darkest part is past,” suggested Samuel Gonzalez, director of recruiting for Key Energy Services. “And we are hiring for floor hands, derrick hands and rig operators in the well-servicing industry.”
Key Energy has offices in both Williston and Sidney, and their workload has been picking up. Williston is their Bakken headquarters, but the company is looking to grow both operations.
Gonzalez came to the Job Fair from Midland, Texas. He had spoken to 50 prospective applicants, 20 of whom were experienced candidates, in the first hour of the event. More than 800 people attended the event on Thursday at the Grand Williston, put on by the Williston Job Services ND office. The event included job listings from throughout the Bakken and scattered oil patches beyond.
