PIGGOTT, Ark. (KAIT) - One hundred jobs are coming to Piggott. Duke Energy is trying to recruit people in rural areas and have committed remote consumer service jobs just for people in Piggott.

Chamber of Commerce Office Manager Debbie Mills said this is great for the community because sometimes people have to drive an hour or longer for a job.

“We have so many people that have to drive out of town or that have children, and daycare is sometimes a problem, and this way they can work from home and just have more income coming into our city,” Mills said.

On Sept. 7 and 8, a job symposium will be held at the Piggott Community Center.

Representatives will be there, conducting interviews on the spot.
