More than a dozen companies operating in the Bakken took timeout this week to do some recruiting.
The Williston Basin Oil and Gas Career Expo was held at the Grand Williston Hotel Tuesday.
It gave companies seeking skilled workers a chance to meet in person with job seekers.
And it gave people looking for new work with top oil-related businesses a chance to show off.
One company official says there are still lots of openings in the oil field.
