Fall Career Day – Sept. 22-23 – TONK, 10:00 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Louisiana Tech is happy to bring our employer partners fully back onto our campus to meet with students face-to-face. We’ve missed them so much and can’t wait to see them back in our Student Center.
While we are happy to offer an in-person format, we have not completely done away with virtual. There are definitely strengths and weaknesses to virtual fairs, so we want to keep those strengths working for our employers and our students.
We are offering a Virtual Career fair through the Handshake platform on Tuesday, September 21, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. as a pre-session to our All Major, 2-day, in-person fair. Students and alumni of all majors are invited to take place in this open browsing event. Students and alumni have the opportunity to register online before the date of the fair. Employers from various local, national and international companies travel to Louisiana Tech to recruit interns and employees from these events. As with all of our large events, registration will be through Handshake.
