Job seekers looking for careers with opportunities for advancement can connect with employers hiring in many business sectors at the “St. Tammany Getting Back to Work” free job fair, on Aug. 20 from 1 to 4 p.m. at Bogue Falaya Hall in the Greater Covington Center.
Presented by Tri-Parish Works in partnership with the City of Covington, St. Tammany Parish Tourist & Convention Commission, St. Tammany Corporation, Pelican State Credit Union and the Northshore Lodging Association, the job fair will feature 40 employers that are hiring across all areas in entry-level, mid-level, and professional roles.
Tri-Parish Works, a partner of the Louisiana Workforce Commission, runs the public workforce centers in St. Tammany, St. Bernard and Plaquemines parishes. The agency aims to foster a thriving and inclusive regional economy, with increased economic opportunity and prosperity for the entire region.
“As the workforce development agency serving our region, Tri-Parish Works connects talent to opportunity. We invest substantial funding every year to train, educate and certify job seekers across all industry sectors, and we work closely with area employers to understand their workforce needs and provide them with financial support to offset the cost of providing on-the-job training that upgrades the workforce," said Don Shea, Director of Business Services at Tri-Parish Works.
Interviews and offers may be made during the event, so job seekers should come prepared in professional attire with several copies of their resumes.
Tri-Parish Works workforce professionals also are available to assist job seekers, from reviewing resumes to offering tips on how to nail the interview. Schedule a visit by calling (985) 646-3940.
