Please help me spread the word about a few job opportunities in Ward 5!

Friday Job Fair 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
The city of Las Vegas and Barrister Global Services Network, Inc., an information technology services company headquartered in Hammond, La., will hold a job fair on Friday, Aug. 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at City Hall, located at 400 Stewart Ave. Barrister plans to open a new operations facility in the city of Las Vegas and is looking to hire for 25 to 40 positions by Sept. 15. Positions will include telephone technical support for personal computers and printers, channel developers, business developers, client relationship specialists and technician assignment group staff. Job descriptions and applications are available online and will be available at the fair.

I am very pleased to welcome this new employer to Las Vegas and particularly to Ward 5. We are very happy to see these new jobs opening up in our city — each new position means a chance at prosperity for a family, another home saved from foreclosure, or renewed hope for the future for an individual who has been unemployed much too long.

The new Barrister facility, which will be located at the city’s Development Services Center building at 333 N. Rancho Drive, will serve multiple purposes, including providing new jobs for local Las Vegans, diversifying Barrister's operations for disaster recovery, allowing easier access to their growing number of West Coast customers, and providing the company an alternative location for service operations.

Residents with similar job experiences who are interested in these new jobs are encouraged to bring their resumes as well as completed applications. Barrister representatives will be on hand to accept applications and provide a brief overview of the company. Applicants should park in the covered parking garage at Las Vegas Boulevard and Stewart. The line will form in the outdoor plaza area of the first floor of City Hall. Parking in the garage will be free.

For more information on Barrister Global Services Network, Inc., go online. For more information on the available positions, contact Heather Lindsay, Barrister recruiter, at (985) 365-0400 ext. 228, or by e-mail at
