Micron Technology expanding Manassas facility

By Jennifer Buske

Micron Technology Inc. is investing $56 million to expand its Manassas facility and bring 123 new jobs to the area, Virginia officials said Tuesday.

"This will have a significant impact on the City of Manassas ... and the region as a whole," said Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling (R), who made the announcement at Micron on Tuesday afternoon. "We want Virginia to be a state that makes things, not just consumes things, and that's why we're excited to see this expansion."

Micron has begun turning roughly 11,000 square feet of its current facility into a clean room to increase its memory chip production, Micron officials said.

Although the company is headquartered in Idaho, Micron officials chose to expand in Manassas because of its location to an educated workforce, site manager Raj Narasimhan said.

This has to help someone looking for one of these jobs. my son came across a site called careerfoo.com. I don't work for them or anything like that. He got his resume, cover letters, uploaded profiles to LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter & job boards. It was only $95 bucks which was a lot less than the sites I was looking at, so I joined as well. I had a very professional resume after just a few hours over the phone (which was nice for an older person) and through emails. They have some great job search tools & engines, career experts you speak with, and a data hub that stores all your info for your next search. Hope this helps someone. Its just so tough right now.
