HOUSTON, Aug. 25 (UPI) -- Jim Brown, Halliburton's president of the Western Hemisphere division, said the oil service giant is likely to hire 11,000 U.S. workers by the end of the year.

In a television interview Brown said most of the jobs would be in North Dakota, the Los Angeles Times reported Thursday.

"If you have a willingness to work and an aptitude to learn with a high-school education, within a year and a half, two years, you can become a front-line supervisor. That job will pay $125,000, $130,000 a year," Brown said.

"It's a tremendous opportunity. You('ve) got to come to North Dakota, but what we're doing here, we're replicating across the nation," he said.
