131 people attended the first of three orientation and job fair sessions organized for the more than 380 workers displaced by layoffs at the Mineral Park mine north of Kingman. Mohave County Community Services Director Susie Duranceau said a few attendees were reportedly hired on the spot at yesterday’s event. Duranceau said more hiring is expected to occur as employers attending the sessions review resumes and evaluate the labor pool talent. She said county officials will keep in touch with the employers to quantify results going forward. The orientation and job fair activities at the county administration building in Kingman continue today from 11:00 to 1:00 p.m., and 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., respectively. Tomorrow’s sessions stretch from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m., and from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
