Dozens of Acadiana’s top employers will screen potential employees Tuesday at the annual LEDA Job Fair from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Cajundome Convention Center.
Organized by the Lafayette Economic Development Authority, the LEDA Job Fair is in its 20th year.
LEDA officials say it has become the top job recruitment event in the Acadiana region; last year 118 companies from multiple sectors participated.
The fair is free to attend and will offer free services to those seeking jobs.
“These companies offer jobs ranging from entry-level to executive, from those needing little training to those requiring advanced degrees,” said Greg Gothreaux, LEDA president and chief executive.
Participating in the job fair will be the Louisiana Workforce Commission. LWC will man its Business and Career Solutions Center that features the E-Application Station.
The service allows job seekers to apply with companies at the job fair, and with in-state and regional employers not attending the event Tuesday.
There also will be seminars to help in job searches: Laurie J. James at 10 a.m. will present “I’ve Submitted a Ré sumé … Now What?” Other seminars, at different times throughout the fair, will help job seekers prepare for interviews and write résumés.
Job seekers should dress professionally and bring copies of their résumés. For information, visit lafayette.org/jobfair.
