There was plenty of opportunity to be found for NSU students nearing graduation at the university’s career fair held at the Friedman student union Tuesday, February 28. The fair featured 45 employers, ranging from a mix of governmental agencies to private industry. Over 150 students took advantage of this opportunity to meet with recruiters and jump-start their careers after they earn their degrees.
NSU will also be sponsoring specific career fairs throughout the month of March for teaching positions, engineering, and graduate studies.
One particularly noteworthy aspect of the career fair is the positive impression NSU alumni have made on their employers. Several recruiters were alumni who have done well and have been sent back to help recruit for their firms. In one case, the company came to the job fair due to a young NSU graduate they hired who had distinguished himself. Alumni doing well and making a good impression created opportunities for the next generation of graduates.
The Natchitoches Parish Journal wishes all the best to the young men and women of Northwestern State University as they start the next chapter of their lives after graduation.
