ARDMORE, Okla. -- The Ardmore Development Authority is working to bring more jobs to southern Oklahoma.

The organization held a hiring conference at the Ardmore Convention Center on Tuesday. Fifty-five employers filled Lloyd Noble Hall looking for qualified applicants.

"We're seeing three to five times the volume of applicants and interested parties as opposed to the normal process where you have people come out to your facility or apply online," said Dot Foods warehouse director David Cavanaugh.

Companies based in Carter, Love and Murray counties were a part of the conference.

"Filling jobs in Marietta or Thackerville, we know that does impact Ardmore -- just like we know having employers in Ardmore impacts Davis and Sulphur," said the ADA's Andrea Anderson. "The more people that have jobs, the better for the region."

Visit the ADA's office at 401 West Main Street, or go to ArdmoreDevelopment.com for more information about employment opportunities.
