LWC to host job fairs this month

Several locations of the Louisiana Workforce Commission (LWC)’s Business and Career Solutions Centers (BCSCs) will host job fairs this month for out-of-school youth ages 18-24. The event is designed to supply young adults with employment opportunities and possible career pathways.

The Recruitment Day will take place on Thursday, Sept. 21, from 3 p.m. until 6 p.m. at BCSCs across the state. Bogalusa’s job fair will be held at the Washington BCSC, located at 420 Ave. B.

One of the companies expected to participate is national retailer, Walmart. They are looking to fill both full and part-time positions for cashiers, second and third shift stockers, cart attendants and maintenance. For many youth, a seasonal or part-time job during the holidays is more than just extra spending money, but an opportunity to earn and learn.

“We are thrilled to coordinate this endeavor with our local offices. Providing job opportunities for Louisiana’s young adult population is necessary for their professional development and for the state’s economy,” said LWC Executive Director Ava Dejoie. “We appreciate the opportunity to partner with local businesses as well as national retailers to make this job fair a success.”

The LWC has 59 BCSCs across Louisiana that provide a variety of employment services to job seekers.
