The Lake Charles Job Fair, hosted by the Calcasieu Business & Career Solutions Center, will be held 9 a.m.-noon Friday, Dec. 1, in the center’s Elcie Guillory Room, 2424 Third St., in Lake Charles.
At this fair, priority service will be given to veterans — veterans of all ages and experience levels are encouraged to attend. Veteran job seekers and other qualified candidates should “dress for success,” bring a picture ID, and several copies of their current resume.
Arrive early to help ensure you have opportunities to meet and interview with employers at the job fair.
The job fair is sponsored by the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury, in conjunction with the Workforce Development Board, the Louisiana Workforce Commission and funded by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.
If you’d like some help preparing for the job fair, there will be a Job Readiness Workshop at 3 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 29 at the Business & Career Solutions Center. Workshop facilitator will be Gwendolyn Guillory with the Business Services Department at the center. Guest speaker will be Nomica Guillory with Excellence in You Coaching.
These speakers will offer some guidance to job seekers, including the dos and don’ts of looking for a job, programs and services to assist in the search and information on available job opportunities.
Pre-registration is required for the workshop, but not for the job fair.
For more information on the job fair or to register for the workshop, call the Calcasieu Business & Career Solutions Center at 337-721-4010.
