Jacksonville, North Carolina--July 23, 2010, A hundred area residents looking for work will have an opportunity to find employment through the end of August.
NexxLinx, Inc., a business process outsourcing provider based in Atlanta, is hiring for 100 open positions, according to Human Resource Director Christie Skerski.
"Once we hire all of these folks it will bring us to more than 300 employees on site," Skerski said. "We have a lot of employees who have been with us for many, many years; and we have a lot of new employees."
The company provides outsourced customer retention, customer care, back office support and technical support services for media, publishing and entertainment companies.
Skerski said people are being hired as customer service and sales associates, team leaders, reporting analysts and security personnel. There is also a position for a human resources assistant.
"We require a minimum of a high school diploma or GED for the sales and customer service programs," she said. "For security and human resources, we do require experience in those fields."
Prospective employees will also have to pass basic typing and spelling tests, she said.
Employees of NexxLinx receive full benefits packages, and Skerski said the company tries to work with people who want to transfer to another call center in New York or Texas. Opportunities for growth are also readily available, she said.
"We have three major senior management positions being filled this week, all from internal promotions," she said. "We have a very strong growth path within the company."
A Now Hiring Open House will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, July 28th, at the company's new location at 1291 Hargett St. in Jacksonville.
"We're going to be doing interviews on the spot and giving tours of the facility so people can see what we're all about," Skerski said. Attendees should dress appropriately for an interview and bring resumes, she said. Refreshments will be available.
NexxLinx moved in January from Gum Branch Road, where it had been for 15 years, to the former New River Pottery building in the New River Shopping Center to provide a more modern facility, Skerski said.
