MORGANTOWN — The conference room of the Marriott Waterfront Place Hotel was bustling with conversation, and opportunity. A job fair organized for the employees affected by the announced layoffs at the former Mylan Pharmaceuticals plant was held Thursday from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m., with representatives from more than 60 employers present.

Russ Rogerson, president and CEO of the Morgantown Area Partnership, said there were more than 2,000 job openings available at the job fair.

“I’ve talked to a lot of our companies that are presenting today, and they seem pleased with the event and the turnout,” Rogerson said. “Obviously, I’d love to see wall-to-wall people, but my understanding is the people who have come are very interested in being able to talk to these many different companies in one spot.”
