If you know someone who is looking for work, send them this article right away.  People who want to work are in short supply right now, and lots of Shreveport - Bossier City businesses are suffering because of it.

To speed up the hiring process, the Greater Shreveport Chamber of Commerce and Louisiana Restaurant Association is teaming up with some of the best places to work in our area to hold a gigantic job fair next month.  For both businesses desperate to staff their stores with quality hires, and people looking to get back to work and life as it was before the pandemic - this is a win/win scenario!  Potential employers and employees will have what folks in the military call a "target-rich environment."

According to the ArkLaTex Homepage, more than 35 companies in the hospitality and restaurant industries will be on hand - and they are all looking to staff up!  Right now is the perfect time to take the entry-level job you could easily get at this event and make your way to the top!  Seriously, if you show initiative - the sky's the limit!

Why?  According to KEEL News, almost a quarter of restaurants and bars have permanently closed due to the pandemic - the ones that remain have to get their businesses up and running immediately and start turning a profit or they'll have to close up shop too.  You could be part of a core group of employees that literally save the company that hires you!  That will open quite a few doors for you down the road.

Your golden opportunity to get your foot in the door is on Tuesday, May 4th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the LSUS University Center Ballroom.  So, bring your resume and dress to impress!  Play your cards right and you could be getting your first paycheck by the middle of May or sooner!
