[HAMMOND,LA] – Southeastern students interacted with representatives from various companies and organizations at the annual Career Fair in hopes of getting a jumpstart for their future careers.
On Sept. 15, students spoke and interviewed with company representatives to help find a job in their specific major. The Career Fair hosted over 130 organizations in the Pennington Student Activity Center for the students to display their resumes and form lasting connections in their target career field.
Students found the Career Fair could open opportunities for their future. Marissa Roberts, a math major, had trouble pinpointing her focus in such a broad major, but said the career fair gave her a basis of information of where she wants to go.
This was not the first time some students attended the Career Fair. Some students made it a point to participate multiple times for the learning opportunities the Career Fair provided. Senior and computer science major Nicholas Moran said this was his third year attending the Career Fair and received his current internship at last year’s Career Fair. He said the Career Fair is a great way to communicate and network with interesting companies and is an effective preparatory tool for his future career ambitions.
