HAMMOND -- Southeastern Louisiana University students and alumni are invited to participate in a professional presence and etiquette seminar on Thursday, Sept. 12. Held as a benefit exclusively for Southeastern students and alumni, the free seminar is scheduled at 3:30 p.m. in Garrett Hall, room 14.
The seminar is provided as preparation for Career Fair 2013, the Office of Career Services' annual university wide career event on Sept. 19.
"Participants will learn how to more effectively interact with employers, dress in acceptable attire, and better prepare one's time before, during and after Career Fair 2013," said Ken Ridgedell, director of Career Services.
Over 125 employers will participate in Career Fair 2013, which is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Pennington Student Activity Center on the corner of University Avenue and General Pershing.
To get the most out of the fair, Ridgedell said students and alumni should bring copies of their resumes; be prepared to briefly discuss career interests, goals, knowledge and skills; and collect brochures and business cards.
