Throughout the month of December, JOB1 is hosting a series of job fairs as part of the City of New Orleans’ effort to rebuild the city’s workforce.

In a statement announcing the series of job fairs, Sunae Villavaso, Director of the Office of Workforce Development, said:

“At JOB1, we say we are “Your First Career Resource” for a reason. In hard times such as these, we are committed to being on the frontlines of our community and connecting people to livelihoods that are suitable to stabilize and sustain themselves and their families, especially during the holiday season.

These jobs fairs are about increasing access and removing barriers, such as transportation, that are preventing the citizens of New Orleans from getting the help they need in their jobs and professional aspirations. It’s also a resource for our city’s employers, many of whom are experiencing labor shortages that continue to threaten livelihoods as well.”
