 contributing to this hiring effort by offering all energy-industry employers
 affected by Katrina the ability to post jobs on PennEnergyJOBS for free
 through the end of the year.  This offer is being extended to all employers
 nationwide that have immediate hiring needs for energy professionals in
 Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.  Posting resumes and applying for jobs is
