The event comes after a job seeker training class that was held July 14 in Abbeville. Shaun Cormier, outreach and recruitment specialist with Acadiana Workforce Solutions, offered tips to make the process easier to navigate.

“It’s critical that jobseekers know how to identify and articulate their skills,” says Falgout, “With pandemic-related unemployment benefits expiring this month, the community is rallying together to get jobseekers back to work.”
