History & Objective

After Vermilion’s first parish-wide job fair in March of 2016, local civic leaders and workforce partners wanted to create a dedicated pathway to employers and job seekers. Using funds earmarked for workforce development, the Vermilion at Work initiative was launched in July of the same year.  Vermilion at Work is an over-arching brand for employment services of all kinds, assisting those seeking career opportunities and employers in Vermilion Parish.
