Ex-offender job fair held at Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office


Convicted felons and ex-offenders had the opportunity to hit the restart button Wednesday by participating in a local job fair.

The event, sponsored by the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office, was held from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Public Safety Complex.

The job fair’s goal was to help recently released offenders re-enter society by putting in the work with a new career.

Those in attendance were taught how to prepare resumes, dress professionally and interview effectively.

Family members of ex-felons and members of the community were also invited to attend. 

Other opportunities included networking and getting information about various resources available in the area.
