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. “It's pretty hard working 25 years and all of a sudden
you're out of work,” he said. “It just gets aggravating.”
The job fair ran all day and applicants had the chance to
speak with company representatives.
