     HAMMOND -- Southeastern Louisiana University’s Office of Career Services is recruiting area employers and businesses to participate in its annual Career Fair scheduled this year for Sept. 21.
     Held as a benefit exclusively for Southeastern students and alumni, Career Fair will be 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 100 area employers.   
     “Career Fair gives employers the ability to conveniently interact directly with over 1,000 students and alumni ready to learn about organizational 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 and regional opportunities.
