Last year through March there were six job fairs at the North Dakota Job Services in Williston — not shabby considering it was in the midst of the downturn — but, for the same period this year, there have been 27 job fairs, more than four times as many.
If you think that might be an indication that the twice-annual job fair going on today at the Grand Williston Hotel will be a job fair on high-caffeine java, you would probably be right. The Spring Job Fair is a sold-out show, with 60 different employers vying to hire hundreds of people to fill positions for the work they see ahead of them in 2017.
