LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - Las Cruces is getting a new call center that is expected to bring in about 500 jobs this year.

Cincinnati-based Convergys Corporation announced Thursday that it will open a new operations center. It said it was adding the location because of continued growth in the market for customer services from a wireless industry client.

A corporation spokeswoman, Vicki Jenkins, said the company would reveal more details later.

She said, however, people can apply immediately for jobs at the center.

Convergys said most of the jobs will be for customer service representatives to handle telephone inquiries. The company said hourly wage jobs will start at $9.50 to $12 an hour.
