CURRIE - Construction continues at the future headquarters of Acme Smoked Fish of North Carolina, and so does the company's push to fill jobs.
 
Last year, the New York-based seafood processor announced plans to expand to the Cape Fear region. On Monday, its employee recruitment process will kick into high with the opening of a new batch of online applications.
