Energy Companies in the Area Looking for Employees

From the Canton Repository:
Plentiful, well-paying jobs are being promised as Chesapeake and other companies begin drilling for oil and natural gas in the Utica shale formation that lies under eastern Ohio, including Stark County.
There are projections that oil development will generate more than 140,000 jobs in Ohio by 2020 and more than 200,000 jobs by 2035. A study for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce estimated shale development already has created more than 38,800 direct, indirect and induced jobs around Ohio.
