Even though oil prices have declined, help wanted signs haven't gone away. Job Service North Dakota officials in Williston say demand is still strong for all types of jobs in the Bakken region. "The Job Fair information for March 11th and 12th has been delivered to employers and registrations are flowing in; so far 25% of them have been oil field openings," said Cindy Sanford, Customer Service Manager for the Williston office. The job fair, which is sponsored in part by Williston Economic Development, will be held from 2 to 7 p.m. each day. The first hour is reserved exclusively for veterans. Williston Spring Job Fair  Culver's Job Fair January 24  Bridger Job Fair January 27
