CORBIN — By John L. Ross / Staff Writer

While the addition of Xerox to the Barbourville business listing started off with 50 new jobs brought into the city — that was only the beginning.

On Wednesday, March 5, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Xerox, in partnership with KCEOC Community Action Partnership, will hold a job fair — a fair that will help to fill 90 new positions that have opened with the firm, according to Brandy Crase, advancement manager with KCEOC.

The company will hire for second-shift and third-shift positions.

Interested persons should go March 5 to the KCEOC WIA office at 464 Court Square in Barbourville.

Those applying must pass a required Federal Bureau of Investigations background check, a personal credit check, a drug test and have either a high school diploma or a GED.

If interested in applying, then bring a driver’s license, a Social Security card and a resume.

Xerox is an equal-opportunity employer.

Barbourville City Council members heard the good news about Xerox in July.

The former Infinity Business Group building is housed on a road bearing the name “Infinity Road” — and that’s where Xerox set up shop to begin its Barbourville operation.

The name of the road housing this new company will now be known as “Partnership Drive.”

This branch of the Xerox Corporation will deal in government-related contract work.

This project took about a year and a half to come to fruition.
