JONESBORO, Ark. -- Construction of the Nestle-Stouffer's plant is progressing rapidly and in a little more than six months it should be completed. Now company leaders are looking for employees to fill jobs inside. Company officials will conduct presentations about Nestle USA at Arkansas State University's Fowler Center tomorrow and tuesday.

Following each presentation, attendees will be re-directed to the convocation center to complete employment applications. The job fair will be held from eight tomorrow morning until six and on tuesday from seven until four that night. When fully operational, Nestle leaders hope to create about one thousand new jobs at their Jonesboro plant. The new facility is scheduled to open by the middle of next year.
