Many people in the Valley and neighboring states have their sights set on one of the almost 2,000 new jobs coming to the Shoals.

Governor Riley announced yesterday the National Alabama Corporation has chosen to build at the Barton Industrial Park near Cherokee in Colbert County.

The company is already hiring for the positions even though they're not expected to break ground for another 2 weeks.

They already have some positions filled and are looking to fill hundreds more.

The National Alabama Corporation is working with AIDT to provide pre-employment training.

Also AIDT has partnered with Northwest Shoals Community College to help in the hiring process.
