This Tuesday, August 17th, St. Theresa’s Hall (101 N Leonard) in Abbeville will be the site of over 30 companies and resource providers assembled to meet local jobseekers. The Vermilion Parish Job Fair will take place from 9 am to noon with COVID-19 restrictions in place. Attendees must wear masks and safety measures like social distancing will be observed.

“It’s been a challenging year for local employers, but the fair will offer them an opportunity to connect with hopefuls and rebuild their teams,” says Vermilion Chamber Director Lynn Guillory.

“Pandemic unemployment benefits have just expired, so this is good time to work with jobseekers who are actively trying to rejoin the workforce or jumpstart their careers,” adds Economic Development Director Anne Falgout.

Partners joining the Vermilion Chamber of Commerce and the Vermilion Economic Development Alliance for the fair’s fifth year include the Louisiana Workforce Commission, Acadiana Workforce Solutions, and South Louisiana Community College.

There is no fee for jobseekers to attend. They should bring resumes and dress for success. For links to participating employers and other details, visit www.vermilionparishjobfair.com.
