As the tourism industry begins to rebound, Visit Lake Charles has worked with our hospitality partners to identify their needs. Their number one need is staff and they are offering great opportunities for those seeking employment.

In an effort to bring together hiring agents and potential employees, Visit Lake Charles in partnership with the American Jobs Center, the City of Lake Charles, SOWELA and the SWLA Economic Development Alliance will be hosting a Hospitality Career Fair.

We are excited that you are interested in having a booth at the hospitality career fair. There is NO COST to participate in the event. However, please be advised that we are limited in the number of booths we can accommodate and they will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. It is critically important that you send a hiring manager (i.e. the person working the event should be able to offer employment to potential candidates if they so choose) for this event to be successful.

The event will start promptly at 9 a.m. Employers will be allowed to enter the room at 7:30 a.m. to set up their booth. Booths will be 10 x 10, piped and draped spaces with an 8 ft. table and three chairs total (two for employers and one for candidates). We suggest you bring a table cloth with your business logo.
