Job Fair

Greater New Orleans: Tri-Parish Works Business & Career Solutions and the City of Slidell will host the Northshore Spring Forward Job Fair on May 8 at the Slidell Auditorium, 2056 2nd Street in Olde Towne Slidell. The Job Fair is free for both employers and job seekers, and will be open on May 8 from 2:00PM to 6:00PM. Area businesses are encouraged to register for space as soon as possible. Registration is available online by visiting www.triparishworks.net. Over thirty companies have already registered and we anticipate that several hundred qualified job seekers will attend the Job Fair. “In November of last year, we conducted one of the largest and most successful Job Fairs ever held in the area,” said Jennifer Barnett, Center Operator at Tri-Parish Works. “We anticipate similar results at the Northshore Spring Forward Job Fair, in addition to other recruitment events, as well as preforming direct follow-ups with area employers to develop customized on-the-job training programs to further support hiring efforts. Our programs are free of charge to both job applicants and area employers, consistent with our goal of continually improving workforce development in the tri-parish area.” For more information about the activities of the Tri-Parish Works Business & Career Solutions and the Louisiana Workforce Commission, contact the St. Tammany Business & Career Solutions Center, (985) 646-6410, or visit www.triparishworks.net. #### Tri-Parish Works Business & Career Solutions Centers, representing the local public workforce development system, are located in St. Tammany and St. Bernard parish.
