OVERLAND PARK, Kansas - Dex One Corporation (NYSE: DEXO) is about to open a new location near 135th and Antioch in Overland Park and they need need to fill 250 open positions.

"The new contact center supports the creation of virtual selling teams, allowing marketing consultants at the local level to be supported by digital platform experts from Overland Park. We will now have the ability to sell digital solutions throughout the year across our markets more quickly and efficiently."
The company has started to hire for the new facility and expects to be fully operational in the second quarter of 2011.
Strong support from the State of Kansas, the City of Overland Park, and regional economic development leaders helped convince Dex One to open the center in the area.
