Holiday hiring event is helping people find jobs

West Virginia

BARBOURSVILLE, WV (WOWK) — With the pandemic still raging across the country, many people are still suffering from job loss and financial insecurity.

But, the Huntington Mall in Barboursville is holding an event today to try to mitigate those effects.

“If you’re following the unemployment rate, you know people’s not getting their checks, so I think this is a great opportunity to give back, you know? To give a job to somebody that needs a job.”

Tammy Jordan, district manager at Charley’s Philly Steaks

For folks out of work or looking for a little extra holiday cash, the mall is holding a job fair to fill some holiday positions.

“It’s a holiday job fair. It’s to get us team players out here in the Huntington Mall for the holiday season. We have a lot of fun here and we would like to bring more people here.”

Margi MacDuff, marketing director, Huntington Mall

The fair features 18 employers looking to recruit people for positions ranging from sales associates to baristas, and even the mall itself is hiring for positions on its security and maintenance staff.

“Looking for outgoing people…dependable…hardworking…And just really friendly.”

Owen Tillis, general manager, Charley’s Philly Steaks

“We are hiring for associate positions and sales related positions.”

Brittany Tucker, Bare Arms Gear

“The Huntington Mall is looking for maintenance staff, holiday gift card employees, and security staff as well.”

Margi MacDuff, marketing director, Huntington Mall

The event is located in the center court of the Huntington Mall from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Even if you can’t make it to the job fair, while the booths may disappear today, the job openings likely won’t.

The jobs at the fair—and their respective application websites—are as follows:
