Halliburton to Hire 11,000 In 2011

Energy company Halliburton plans to hire 11,000 workers in North America in 2011, a top executive told Cramer Wednesday.

Jim Brown, president of Western Hemisphere, said many of the new hires will be sent to North Dakota's oil-rich Bakken shale, which is one of the largest oil finds in U.S. history and where Cramer broadcast a special episode of "Mad Money" on Wednesday. Brown said Halliburton is currently hiring across the board--from MBAs to unskilled workers.

"If you have a willingness to work and an aptitude to learn with a high school education, within a year-and-a-half to two years, you can become a front-line supervisor. That job will pay $125,000 to $130,000 a year," Brown said. "It's a tremendous opportunity. You gotta come to North Dakota, but what we're doing here, we're replicating across the nation."
