Application Process

The Louisiana Workforce Commission is the resource for many jobs, including industrial jobs within Southwest Louisiana. A general application may be completed online at or in person at 2424 3rd Street in Lake Charles.

Applications are not automatically forwarded to employers; rather, when a job opening exists, LAWORKS personnel screen the applicants for referral. Therefore, it is imperative to thoroughly and accurately complete the application. Referrals are based on the criteria and qualifications given by the employer at the time the opening is listed.

The application remains on file throughout the calendar year in which it is submitted. One application will suffice for the same type of job, regardless of the industrial site. If an applicant wishes to apply for a different type of job, a new application should be completed.

If an industrial site selects an application, the employment specialists within each plant may need further testing or have additional application requirements. Reference and background checks are done routinely during the application process. Ultimately, an offer of employment may be extended. When a candidate accepts employment, a medical examination and drug screening will be done.
