SLIDELL — Job seekers can connect with employers at the fifth annual MEGA Fall Job Fair, on Wednesday, Oct. 20 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Castine Center in in Mandeville.
Presented by Tri-Parish Works in partnership with St. Tammany Recreation District, GNO Inc., St. Tammany Parish Government, Louisiana Northshore and St. Tammany Corporation, the event will feature 150 employers with over 6,000 open positions, from all industries at worksite locations from Baton Rouge to the Gulf Coast and the southshore.
