     HAMMOND – A professional resume, appearance and frame of mind are all excellent assets to bring to Southeastern Louisiana University’s Career Fair 2019, and Career Services has scheduled three pre-fair events to help prepare participants in those aspects.
     Held as a benefit exclusively for students and alumni, the free events are scheduled in September leading up to the actual day of Career Fair 2019, which is Thursday, Sept. 19.
     First up are Walk-in Resume Reviews scheduled Monday through Thursday, Sept. 3 – 17, from 9 – 11 a.m. and 1 – 3 p.m. Held in the Student Union Annex, room 2101, the resume reviews offer five-minute reviews of resumes by a career counselor. No registration is necessary, and all reviews are free of charge. Attendees must bring a hard copy of their resumes to the review. The sessions are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
     Next on the agenda is an event at JCPenney called “Suit Up.” Scheduled Sept. 8 from 4 to 8 p.m., the event is designed to teach attendees how to “dress to impress” at Career Fair 2019 and beyond. Participants will be able to save up to 60% on professional attire, receive staff assistance with fittings and coordinating styles, grooming tips from the JCPenney Salon, and free mini-makeovers and samples from Sephora. Students must present their Southeastern student ID to participate.
     “Networking for Introverts” is the final pre-fair event scheduled Sept. 11 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. in the Alumni Center Banquet Room. Co-sponsored by the Alumni Association, the seminar will help attendees learn how to properly introduce themselves and overcome anxieties related to networking.
     Over 130 employers will participate in Career Fair 2019, 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.
