Currently, there are two large western Maryland companies, Pillar Innovations and Beitzel Corporation (yes, there is a connection to Garrett County's Del. Wendell Beitzel) that contract with gas drillers in neighboring Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Between their websites, there are 49 job openings as of 9:30 a.m. on Monday March 2. Those openings range from sales to accounting to plumbing to electrical to project management. Those jobs have been listed on the websites for at least a week now. Those sound like pretty good jobs to me.
