BECKLEY - A job fair for Wildcat Energy on Wednesday attracted many people at the convention center in Beckley.

The coal mining operation owned by Patriot Energy has openings for experienced surface coal miners to work at their Eskdale location.

Bryan Nottingham of Clay was recently laid off. He said the industry is not booming like it used to. β€œIt's pretty hard working 25 years and all of a sudden you're out of work,” he said. β€œIt just gets aggravating.”

The job fair ran all day and applicants had the chance to speak with company representatives.
