Spotlight St. Bernard Business Expo and Job Fair Returns

CHALMETTE, La. – The St. Bernard Chamber of Commerce has teamed up with the St. Bernard Parish Government and Tri-Parish Works to host Spotlight St. Bernard: St. Bernard Chamber Business Expo & Job Fair. The event takes place on Thursday, Sep. 5, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Val Riess Recreation Complex, in the Hall of Fame Center.

According to a news release, the gathering offers local businesses and job seekers the opportunity to see what St. Bernard has to offer to both companies and employees.

Representatives from a wide range of industries, including non-profit, food service, refinery, transportation, and hospitality, among others, will interact with guests and answer questions. Since hiring companies will meet prospective employees, attendees are encouraged to bring business cards and résumés.
