HAMMOND -- Southeastern Louisiana University's Office of Career Services is recruiting employers and businesses to participate in its annual Career Fair scheduled this year for Thursday, Sept. 18.
A premier event exclusively for Southeastern students and alumni, Career Fair 2014 will be held in the Pennington Student Activity Center on the corner of University Avenue and General Pershing from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Ken Ridgedell, director of Career Services, said the fair typically attracts more than 125 area employers.
"Career Fair 2014 gives employers the ability to conveniently interact directly with over 1,000 students and alumni ready to learn about career opportunities," Ridgedell said. "The event allows employers to more effectively identify candidates with the right mix of qualifications, personality, attitude, ability, and desire that best fits their organization's culture, philosophy, and job openings whether those openings are available now or in the near future."
Ridgedell added that many Southeastern students express an interest in meeting with employers who offer national, regional and local opportunities.
