Cognosante will hold job fair today
A company that provides support for the national Health Insurance Exchange will have a job fair today as it seeks to fill more than 100 full-time jobs.
Lisa Calla-Russ, a recruiter with Cognosante, said the company invites prospective employees to visit the Goodwill Career Development Center, 1901 W. Gore, Suite B, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Cognosante is a contractor for Serco, which operates the call center in west Lawton that supports the Affordable Care Act. It laid off many in July, but Calla-Russ said the workload has increased and the company hopes to hire 134 full-time employees.
Day and evening shifts will be filled, and the first group of employees will train on Nov. 27 (not Nov. 22 as appeared in Sunday's edition); additional groups will be added through December.
