SHREVEPORT, La. – On Thursday, August 8, 2019, Goodwill Industries of North Louisiana will host a job fair at its Job Center located at 800 W. 70th Street, Shreveport.
Teleperformance, US Census Bureau, Sprint, Ollie’s Bargain Outlet, and the Service Companies are just a few of the companies that will have representatives accepting applications, doing interviews and filling open positions by job fair attendees. This event is free and open to the public and will be from 1 pm to 3 pm.
“Goodwill’s focus is on putting people to work in stable, competitive employment and giving them the skills needed to stay in those jobs,” Darelene Robinson, Open Placement Manager says. “A job fair is a great way to introduce our clients to employers who are needing to fill positions, and hire the right people on the spot.”
Goodwill believes that giving people a hand up is much more valuable than a hand out. Opening doors to people who need jobs, not only empowers the citizens of Shreveport and all of the communities we serve to succeed, but also helps the city as a whole by providing a well-trained and inspired workforce.
