Hundreds of jobs are coming to Huntington in the next year. The TLK Group, based out of Bethesda, Md., plans to set up shop in downtown Huntington at the River Tower Building.
The company's goal is to hire 500 people over the next year.
Beth Marcum works in the building and said she is excited to see TLK coming to town.
"The reality is jobs have been so scarce so this opportunity has the folks who are looking for jobs anxious they're out here beating the doors trying to be the first in," she said.
The company handles outbound calls for fundraising and market research or inbound calls for customer care, sales and surveys. TLK plans to pen in the next couple weeks with 150 to 200 positions and grow to 500 by next years.
"What we're looking for is people with highly functional personal computer skills and good communication skills too," Jeremy Criss, the call center director for TLK, said. A positive attitude is a must."
The interviewing process will begin next week at the Hampton Inn at Kinetic Park from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
