What should be a long term economic boost for Acadiana could turn into a near-term economic boost for hundreds of Acadiana residents. If you're skilled in carpentry, construction, and other aspects of construction then there could be a job, a good job, waiting for you during the enlargement phase of Lafayette Regional Airport's new passenger terminal.

Lemoine Manhattan, a joint venture of The Lemoine Company and Manhattan Construction Company, along with SLCC is hoping to connect skilled workers with jobs at the airport via a  job fair scheduled for tomorrow at South Louisiana Community College's Devalcourt Street Campus in Lafayette.

This industrial trades job fair will seek to place persons with companies that are seeking heavy equipment operators, concrete finishers, carpenters, CDL class A/B truck drivers, construction laborers, masons, and other construction craft trades with skills.

The job fair will run from 9 am until Noon at the Devalcourt Auditorium on campus at SLCC. South Louisiana Community College is located at 320 Devalcourt Street in Lafayette.
