Even in the face of nationwide economic strain, Albuquerque remains an economic stronghold. More new jobs, lower unemployment, and a more profitable real estate market than many other cities across the nation mean more opportunities for employment than one would be likely to find elsewhere.
For example, the Rio Rancho-based Sprint Contact Center announced Thursday that it planned to take on around 200 new employees for positions with competitive pay and benefits, including dental, medical, 401(k) and bonuses, as well as paid training and other perks.
The 12-year-old Sprint call center is looking for employees with 1-2 years' experience in customer service, proficiency in Window's computer systems, and availability to work nights and weekends. Those criteria leave those employees of Convergys Corp., an Albuquerque call center that recently announced the need for layoffs, with more than a fighting chance to secure a well-paying position with Sprint.
Job hunters have the opportunity to learn more about the positions offered by attending the Gobs of Jobs Career Fair this coming Tuesday the 23rd at the Marriott Pyramid from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.; by calling the center at (505)896-5420 or (505)896-5418; or by visiting www.sprint.com/callcenterjobs.
