Shreveport, LA – On Wednesday, February 26, 2020, Goodwill Industries of North Louisiana and Northwest Louisiana Technical Community College will host a job fair at the NLTCC-Shreveport Campus located at 2010 North Market Street, Building E, Shreveport.
Union Pacific Railroad, Coca-Cola Bottling Co., City of Shreveport, Always Best Care, Storer Services, AAFES Exchange, The Service Companies and Red River Sanitors 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 10am to 1pm.
“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.
