Virtual Recruiting Events
Southern Alliance Career Fair – June 16, 2020
The Career Center has partnered with other universities in the southern part of our country to provide a recruiting experience through the virtual fair platform CareerEco.
This event is free to attend by all students and alumni of Louisiana Tech.
Fall Career Day
Session 1: Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Aviation Fair 2020 – Thursday, September 24, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm (STEMA) – in the Student Center
Session 2: Communication, Art, Social Sciences, Business, Agriculture, and Health Fair 2020 – Friday, September 25, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm (CASBAH!) – in the Student Center
Last fall was our first two-day event, and we will continue this model for Fall 2020. Career Day is the largest on-campus recruiting event to offer networking opportunities for employers, alumni, and students, and we hope you can be a part of it.
As many employers have observed, our attendance has increased while our space has not. In an effort to resolve this issue, we have taken your feedback into consideration and restructured Fall Career Day. Career Day participation is still a direct way to connect employers with Louisiana Tech talent and provide them with information about full time, part time, and internship availability. Our campus is going through many repairs, renovations, reorganizations, and new construction, so the Louisiana Tech Fall Career Day will again be a two-day event to accommodate. Handshake will be used for registration and event management. Make sure your account is up to date.
