Louisiana Christian University to host spring Career Fair
The Center for Calling & Career at Louisiana Christian University will host a job fair Thursday, March 16 for students seeking future employment. This event allows interested students to apply for jobs in various fields according to their academic disciplines.
Students will be able to submit resumes and applications while visiting with representatives of the different employers looking for assistance in various roles.
A photographer will be in the lobby of the Student Center to take complimentary professional headshots of students.
“Our goal is hosting a Career Fair each semester on campus,” said Vice President for Student Life Meredith Rennier. “The Center for Calling and Career is preparing graduates by creating these networking opportunities for students to meet with employers throughout the state. We work with students throughout the academic year in hosting various workshops that include resume writing, interview skills, dining etiquette and LinkedIn 101 all in preparation for preparing for life after graduation.”
Each employer will have a table set up advertising the different positions with applications available for interested students.
