The Career Fair is held each fall and spring semester. Local, state, national and international employers have regularly utilized these events to recruit UL Lafayette students and alumni. Participants have the opportunity to personally meet recruiters from diverse companies and to network with returning alumni. Companies also have the option of interviewing applicants after the event. Students should dress professionally and have several copies of their resume available to submit to prospective employers. We are pleased to announce that we have returned to in-person career fairs! Career fairs are a great way to get a leg up with companies that interest you.
