Participants at the career fair can ask questions and learn more about the hiring process in a welcoming, one-on-one setting. The Flash Career Fair is part of an effort across New Orleans to connect job seekers to careers in the hospitality and tourism industry. The last Flash Career Fair was at Behrman Gymnasium with several participating employers seeking new hires.
Why: In New Orleans, tourism provides thousands of satisfying jobs in fields like guest relations, finance, administration, housekeeping, food and beverage service and beyond. Each job offers an opportunity for growth to move up in a company while enjoying employee benefits and the peace of mind that comes with a steady paycheck. A job in hospitality and tourism – which can start by a visit to the Flash Career Fair – is the basis for a lasting and fulfilling career in New Orleans.
