NEWORLEANS-- Retailers at the revamped Riverwalk, now known as the Outlet Collection at Riverwalk, will hold a job fair Monday morning, and they are looking for over 1,000 new employees.

The $70 million project will convert 50,000 square feet to a nearly 250,000 square foot development called The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk.

The project will be the nation's first outlet center in a downtown setting.

During construction, The Howard Hughes Corporation created more than 700 construction jobs, and there will be both part-time and full-time jobs available as the new shopping center gets ready to open next month.

Among the many outlet stores you'll find there are Coach, Last Call Studio by Neiman Marcus, Guess, Gap, and forever 21.

The original building has been gutted to make way for restaurants and the high end outlet stores.

Officials say the building's transformation will give the entire area an economic boost.

The mall is scheduled to reopen on May 22, with about 1,600 permanent part-time and full-time jobs at the location.

The job fair, in partnership with JOB1 in the Mayor's Office of Workforce Development, is free and open to all job seekers, and will be held Monday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., at the Ernest Morial Convention Center, in the Great Hall.

Positions available include management, sales, food service and administrative. Participating retailers including Neiman Marcus Last Call Studio, Forever 21, Coach, Tommy Bahama Outlet and many more.
